HBCU Night 2023
On February 11th, the Hornets hosted the annual HBCU Night presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. The day kicked off with a panel discussion of HBCU graduates discussing their paths to success with middle and high school students from around the Carolinas. The panel was followed by a college fair featuring HBCUs from around the country. Before doors opened for the Hornets game, there was an HBCU alumni networking mixer.
