As most of us would agree, Beyoncé got us all in our feelings with her Coachella performances. For many of us whether we attended an HBCU or not we could relate on some level with the references to the bands, Greek life, homecoming or just hanging on the yard.

HBCU SpringComing extended those memories and compounded the “Beychella” excitement as the event returned to New York City, last weekend, kicking off the city’s festival series for the fourth year in a row. Nearly 4,000 alumni, influencers and friends from many of the country’s 101 Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) enjoyed a full weekend of events that offered innovation, education, fitness, strategy and a social escape. The Grant Access, LLC and Listen TWO Me, LLC partnered with title sponsor, Cantu, to host this year’s event. Partial proceeds from the weekend benefited the Puissance Scholarship — a scholarship created for students interested in attending an HBCU.
