HBCU SpringComing welcomes grads back home with 9th annual festival in NYC

HBCU SpringComing welcomes grads back home with 9th annual festival in NYC
Posted By: Sofía Montiel on March 02, 2023

The nation’s largest gathering of graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the northeast and southeast will be held during a three-day weekend event that is jam-packed with festivities.

The HBCU SpringComing is also presented by Indeed.

The annual HBCU SpringComing is returning bigger and better for its ninth installment of festivals, in both Birmingham, Alabama, from March 17–19 and in New York City from April 14–16.

Lauren Grove and George A. Peters II created the event to celebrate and acknowledge the accomplishments of influential HBCU graduates from around the country who have made their mark. The co-founders have developed a safe community that encourages building a bond between HBCU students and alumni while honoring the spirit of the southern Black collegiate homecoming.



After being hosted virtually in 2021 due to the spread of Covid-19, the HBCU SpringComing returned last year with record-breaking numbers, raised more than $75,000 in scholarship donations, and secured exclusive partnership deals.

“As HBCU SpringComing continues to grow and evolve, we’re very proud of everything we’ve been able to accomplish within the HBCU community through innovative and intentional events,” said Peters. “Bridging the gap between HBCU alumni and allies in the New York Tri-State area and now Birmingham—a city in the south, deeply rooted in Black excellence—is just one of the many reasons why our festival is so special and unique. To date, we’ve had more than 25,000 attendees. This speaks to our team’s ability to create authentic culture and conversation amongst a group of Black leaders representing the best and brightest to come out of historically Black colleges and universities.”
