BlackGreek.TV was developed out of the question, “Are Black Greek Lettered Organizations still relevant today?” Lillian Jones, Content Director of EMQ Networks, suggests they are, “These organizations still hold fellowship, scholarship, and service as its main pillars and are constanly working in our communities. The problem is more people see the parties than the community outreach.”

Photos from Delaware State University Homecoming 2010


My visit back home for DSU Homecoming October 16, 2010 was monumental on all sorts of levels. It’s always feels good to go back and be in the company of old friends and classmates and catch up on all the latest news and of course have fun in the process!

Can You Take Your SO to Homecoming?

Taking Ya Folx (AKA Signifcant Other) to Homecoming when they didn’t’ go there!  Whew!  This is always a sticky situation.  To take, or not to take?  That is the question!  This is how I feel about taking My Folx to Homecoming @ HU (and I’m not talkin’ about Mom and Dad).  You have to be VERY secure in your relationship and they have to know how to play the back.  It’s almost like you’re the celebrity and they are your non-famous S.O.  You are huggin’ and posin’ (for pictures) with so many people.  Steppin’ with your frat or sorority that your SO certainly can get pushed to the side.  If they are the type that needs lots of hand-holding, then definitely HU (my alma mater) homecoming is NOT the place for them.
