"What a great way to share your passion and fond memories with the world and illustrate the importance of college."

Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. of North Carolina A&T State University

I read the book and smiled the whole time. The pictures are vibrant and fun.

What a wonderful idea! I bought this for my nephew and god-sons as soon as I saw it. Thank you for sharing this story so many can relate to. Reminds me of my dad taking my sister and I to all those homecomings at JCSU all the way up to entering an HBCU ourselves.

I'm excited about this book, there is a female drum major on the cover! That's me! You need to buy this book.

A fun, easy reading book for the entire family to enjoy. I love how the author highlighted all of the things that make homecoming AWESOME; the parade, tailgating, Greeks, the football game and walking the yard! Happy Homecoming!
