Bring em out...Bring em owt...

It is spring season, which also means it is Greek season! If you went to a Historically Black College University then you are aware of the excitement around the "Probate" shows. Well if it wasn't excitement at your school it is a sight to see at Howard. It is the time where everyone skips class to wait patiently to see the spring lines of the Sororities and Fraternities.

It is an amazing experience to see these young men and women show the world that they are ready to be of service to their community. But they can't just say it, they must celebrate and reveal all that they have learned.

I took a trip back to Howard University to see my little sisters "come out". I was overjoyed at the amazing job that they did and left eager to come back to see the legacy that they leave at Howard and in their community.

With a race that finds it hard to come together at times, it is always great to be around groups of people that have come together with a common purpose. It is also lovely to hear them sing, dance, and step, taking us back to the times where our ancestors celebrated through these very styles.

It is more than a moment...it is a legacy! May it live on through Spring 09.

This is why I'm always tring to get people to go to HBCUs. The realness is what keeps these schools goin. An even though y'all went to Howard (I'm a Hampton alum) I still have mad love for ya.

I think that to see a greek show at any school would be a great sight to see. But you ladies are right...HBCU shows seem to have a few extra elements. There are also so many people...that it adds to the energy of the event.

I encourage everyone to go see a HBCU show once in their life time!

I was just thinking about this a couple of days ago. My deltaversary was last month and I am 7 years old.

College wouldn't be the same without great probate shows. i found a a few more years of AKA Probates, Alpha Probates, Delta Probates, Omega Probates, and Zeta Probates at EDI Photography. (I think they're all from alpha chapters.) There used to be more (including Sigmas and SGRho) but they've been taking them down and putting them back up. Anyone find other good sites?
