The Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC) Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Festival originated with humble beginnings of 150 attendees in 2003 and matured to 11,000 attendees in 2019 – making us the largest HBCU Festival in the nation! Annually, we draw increasing numbers of high school students due to the over 70 HBCUs in attendance – many offering on-site admissions, interviews, music auditions, waived application fees, and scholarships. We offer 11 seminars packed with impactful information to prepare students and parents for a successful college tenure – from securing financial aid to finding your ideal career path. To date the ASBC HBCU Festival has awarded over $20 million in scholarships, with $11 million offered in 2019. Plus we bring the Homecoming flavor with an HBCU drum line and Divine 9 step show. Join us for this profound day!
