The time came again, where Howard University celebrated its 87th Homecoming in Washington, DC.
On Friday, Yardfest was the epitome of culture, heritage, and African-American savviness.
Javan and I captured some evidence of this culture while displaying style and poise.
Enjoy the photos.
If you noticed, Young Boss has been revealed.
I had too.
Mug for the camera – Courtnee Davis, better known as Posh of www.loveandposhion.com and Thaydra Carter mugged for my camera on last night. I must say the Nikon enjoyed these faces, not to mention the style they presented at "Rent The Runway" , a fashion show put on by the University of Alabama Panhellenic Council. However, I decided not to take photos of the actual runway presentation because it was n o t h i n g to photograph, so we decided to display it for TheBlaqueBook viewers instead. Plus, I got bonus points for going for my History of Costume course, yeahhhh I just do not take photos, I study this.
Homecoming is always a time of new faces compiled with the plethora of old faces.
Not to mention, the style that everyone exudes on this grand occasion.
At the University of Alabama, my prestigious fraternity of Alpha Phi Alpha presented
An event at the 420th House of ALPHA, to celebrate the heritage of Homecoming at the University.
I must say, its not for the weak at heart.
If you come, come h a r d.

With that said, the transition from the regular person to an influential person in your demographic is a full time job. Upholding high moral standard as an poised southern gentleman, in addition, to the leadership positions that come into play. All in all, I believe that you must create a palette for yourself to cultivate your marketability in life and personally, I want to break that socioeconomic barrier that my skin color tends to do in black men's lives. This is will not be a factor in my life.
I believe that keeping all these things in mind, and keeping a good ensemble together while doing makes the trip worthwhile.
…or better yet a s i c k demeanor.
