SCHOOL DAZE
^^^^^^^^^  YES!!
This movie captured my college experience in the AUC so well that every time I watch it, I cry at the end credits.  The soundtrack is a wonderful blend of artistry...big band sound, church, ja-- and exquisite female lead vocals. But the story was really a re-enactment of my time at Morehouse.  Spike hit this one out of the park!
:nod: :clap: :bow:

I'll admit that I had been unaware of the history of Mexico's eastern coastline as it relates to the slave trade.  Slave ships passing through the Caribbean into the Gulf of Mexico established African roots there.  In the early 1980's the newspaper in my hometown (Winston-Salem, NC) did a feature on Mexican migration to Winston-Salem; they delved into the specific African roots of the migrants, including their darker hues, their Atlantic journey, the location they migrated from (primarily Tampico up to Matamoros) and how they made it to Winston-Salem.

Appears that the east coast of Mexico is no different than Brazil.  Maybe those slave ship captains got lost? :tiptoe:

Simply put, I believe your gender at birth should be the same gender you compete in for athletic events in high school, college and the olympics.

Maybe someone at the ABC affiliate in Atlanta should read his bio...I was sitting in my office today and the noon news came on; they made a brief mention right off the top, then went to their next story...(really?) I was curious, so I read up on Mr. Jordan, and didn't know he was born in Atlanta, represented Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter Gault, who broke the color barrier at the University of Georgia, among many of his major contributions. 

Vernon Jordan has much, much more to his credit as a humble, yet driven and accomplished professional; why he was not given a full video report on today's news baffles me.  If Gayle King stated the news this morning on CBS, clearly all of the Atlanta local stations had time to prepare a piece for noon.  Maybe someone did run a package...but I was just watching Channel 2, and they didn't.  Needless to say...I'm disappointed in them. :shrug:

Did I miss something???  There was no story, other than a blurred photo of a black man.  Is this real?

I gotta say...our 1978 and 1979 showdowns were classic; my freshman year (77) MoBrown destroyed us at Herndon.  We got even the next year (78) in what most would consider a "draw" over at Lakewood Stadium.  That year, they still outnumbered us, as they did in '77...but we added trumpets, some woodwinds and a few more lower brass.  With those additions, we were much more comfortable, as well as more talented...and we blew Earth, Wind and Fire's "Magic Mind" during halftime. We blew dat a-- away! :dedhorse:...then they damn near tucked their tails between their legs and left the stadium as soon as the game was over. They didn't want no showdown from the stands.  :nono2:

We took it up a notch in 1979 as our director - Rod Smith, wrote a cold-a-- arrangement of "After The Love Has Gone"...which was a half step higher than Morris Brown's.  We were in the stands...beginning of 4th quarter and MoBrown decided to play their version.  We barely let them finish when we exploded with our version, which literally sounded brighter, more energetic and heavenly.  The crown went wild!  Even their students were cheering us. Unbelievable.

Hard work can overcome many obstacles. :bow:

This is history that should be celebrated not just at HBCUs, but across an (unlimited) NCAA sports perspective.  :bow:
