  • Programs & Initiatives

    The Programs and Initiatives of The National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc. are designed and implemented to highlight the accomplishments of Historically Black Colleges and Universities through their graduates and students. It's primary vehicle to accomplish this is the Annual NBCA Hall of Fame Weekend. However, during the year other initiatives are conducted with specific emphasis placed on educating and developing current and future generations of young leaders. These Programs and Initiatives include: The Andrew Young Emerging Leaders Institute Call to Womanhood and Call to Manhood Chefs of the World: A Taste of Fame The Competition of Black College Queens HBCU Invitational Golf Classic Legacy Lecture Series Tour Positive Image Program Thomas W.

    HALL OF FAME PROGRAMS & INITIATIVES

      The Competition of Black College Queens (the Competition) showcases young African-American women who have already been chosen by their respective college or university to represent them as their “campus queen.” The Competition highlights the intellect, talent and personalities of these young women who are students attending HBCU’s.  During the Competition, these queens will vie for the title of Miss NBCA Hall of Fame Foundation – what we refer to as “The Queen of Queens.”  During her reign, Miss Hall of Fame will travel around the country, representing the NBCA Hall of Fame Foundation, serving as its spokesperson, and as such will be a positive reflection of all that HBCU’s represent.

  • The National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc. hosts the Competition of Black College Queens as part of its Annual Hall of Fame Weekend. The Competition is a tribute to young women attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) who have chosen to strive for excellence through education.

  • Andrew Young Emerging Leaders Institute

    The AYE Leaders Institute was created to assist students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities in developing and/or honing their leadership skills with emphasis on understanding some of the entrepreneurial, social, technological, economic, environmental and political trends and events that are likely to occur over the next 20 years and the impact that these trends and events may have on their livelihood.

    The AYE Leaders Institute will ultimately:
    • Prepare students to be leaders and change agents for the world community
    • Offer exposure to influential leaders in the public and private sector
    • Cultivate a cadre of new generation of leaders
    • Grant students an opportunity to develop and apply leadership skills
  • Legacy Lecture Series

    One of the Hall of Fame’s many initiatives is its nationally recognized Legacy Lecture Series. The Hall of Fame launched the Legacy Lecture Series in an effort to broaden the knowledge and experiences of minority and disadvantaged college students by exposing them to the successes of a diverse group of African American scholars and professionals.
    Developed in 2007, the Series is established as a portal to use the talents of graduates of HBCUs and other corporate and community leaders who can share their collective wisdom, knowledge and experiences with the next generation of leaders while promoting the viability of HBCUs. Learn more about the Legacy Lecture Series and who are some of these most prolific voices of wisdom in our community.
