wtf: hbcu marching band will perform at trump’s inauguration

January 4, 2017

Social media has been ablaze with the as of yet unconfirmed news that two marching bands from Historically Black Colleges & Universities are expected to perform at the presidential inauguration this year. Talladega College’s Marching Tornadoes and the University of Tennessee-Knoxvilled’s Pride of Southland have not confirmed their invitation or involvement, but it is said that they are expected to perform. Considering the fact that the president-elect’s political leanings are as far from pro-Black as possible, it’s befuddling why any HBCU would support the inauguration, but we’re hoping that this all gets cleared up soon.
