HU Alternative Spring Breakers 2016

On Friday March 18, 2016 HUAC Baltimore hosted a well deserved soul food buffet dinner for a group of current HU students that spent their Spring Break in Baltimore city doing community service. Since 2013 these groups of students have spent their vacation time working with Baltimore youth to combat gang violence, neighborhood beautification and revitalization, and academic tutoring. Money was raised through donations to fund this event that these students have looked forward to for the past 4 years. Local alumni also attended to fellowship and trade stories of there times at our beloved HU.

Back-to-School!: Summer Recap

Ahh yes! It's about that time of year. Football season is around the corner, the weather will be getting cooler, and the leaves will be changing soon. A new class of Bison have been greeted by the festivities of Freshmen Move-In; meanwhile, Bison of classes past have already begun to plan out their homecoming.

While we enjoy the last bit of summer, let's tell you what we've been up to during these last few humid months. Ok, so it's been a while since we updated you. We'll take fault for that. Sorry. You forgive us right? It's still all #BisonLove right? Is that a smile we see creeping across your face? Yes? All is forgiven? Ok! Now that we've gotten all of the formalities out of the way, let's get down to business.

This year's Day at the Races went off without a hitch. The event takes place annually at Baltimore's famous Pimilco Racetrack. The Home of the Preakness. Day at the Races serves as a fundraiser for the club's Mamie Carroll Woodford Scholarship. Furthermore, it's a great networking event for alumni across the DC, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area. The tickets were sold out with over 65 people in attendance. The group enjoyed food, drinks and line dancing. Billy Mickens of Spirit Feet had people out of their seats, learning all of the latest line dances!

The success of Day at the Races meant plenty of funds for our 2015 Mamie C. Woodford Scholarship winners. Yes, plural! This year we named more than one winner. We know what you're thinking. How many winners? Who were they? Stay tuned! We'll reveal the winners right here at a later date.

Next, came the Incoming Freshman Cook-Out. HUACB personally welcomes Baltimore-area Howard Freshmen by hosting a cookout annually. On Saturday, July 18th, we headed out to Belmont Park in Parkville, MD for food and fun. Club members also revealed the winners of the Mamie C. Woodford Scholarship during the cookout. There we go again, mentioning those scholarship winners. We're going to tell you, we promise!

That brings us to present day. The club's first Fall meeting will take place Saturday, September 12th at the Enoch Pratt Library Free Library, 6310 Reisterstown Rd. Baltimore, MD 21215. We'll have plenty to discuss! Our new administration will be taking the reigns as we prepare for The Nation's Classic and Homecoming among other things. We look forward to seeing you!

Speaking of the Nation's Classic... Howard University takes on Hampton Institute University Friday, September 18th, 2015 at RFK Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30pm and we plan to be there! Are you coming with us? We'll keep you posted with the details. Email us or join our mailing list to stay in the loop with all things HUACB!


Happy (Belated) New Year!

A Night at the Movies

Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in Univeral Pictures' Get On Up (PG-13), In theaters August 1st, 2014.

Heeeyyyy (In our best James Brown voice).. that guy looks familiar. If that's what you find yourself thinking as you look at the picture above, you have good reason. You might recognize Chadwick Boseman from his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Jackie Robinson in 42 (2013). If that's not it, you may recognize Boseman from seeing him around Howard's Campus. That's right, Chadwick Boseman ate in The Punch Out just like the rest of us. He is a proud Howard University Alumnus.

For that reason, the Howard University Alumni Association is supporting his latest role as the legendary James Brown in the biopic Get On Up. If that's not a good enough reason, there's a bigger picture for you to see here. Get On Up is the latest in a modern-wave of Hollywood films that are driven by a majority African-American cast. The Best Man Holiday, Think Like a Man Too, and About Last Night are few of the latest examples that hit it big at the box office. Let's make sure that Get On Up is the next.

In the 90s, movies and television depicted everyday characters in a full spectrum of brown complexions. Somewhere along the way we lost that. Now's our chance to get it back. Howard University has always stood at the helm in the betterment of the African-American community; let's continue that legacy.

Join the Howard University Alumni Club of Baltimore for Movie Night! Feel free to bring a friend or the family with you.
