The annual State Fair Classic featuring Grambling State and Prairie View A&M was the marquee HBCU event for Week 5.
With the anticipation of the halftime show between two bands that tend to put it all on the line, only one of the performances made the cut.
Throw in some shows that feature a tribute the songstress Aretha Franklin, a marriage proposal, some cool old school R&B, a tribute to HBCUs, and Greek life, and you’ll end up with a pretty nice mix of shows that complete our weekly list.
