The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Lucky for us, there's YouTube.

ESPN fell regrettably short of its responsibility when televising black college football's national championship. Luckily, because of the importance of HBCU bands, there has long been a cadre of marching music media covering them at a level that is only beginning to emerge with PWI bands. While the Worldwide Leader left us without, several of those talented folks were in hand to serve.

Pregame Battle

Zero Quarter

Alcorn State Halftime

NC A&T Halftime

Thanks to both DaEdge1 Productions and ShowtimeWeb for these. Check them both out for other HBCU band footage, including more from the Celebration Bowl and its high school Battle of the Bands.

In other media, the conversation is taking place on the premier HBCU band forum, The 5th Quarter. You can also tune in tonight (Sunday, December 20, 2015) to the Celebration Bowl recap edition of the 90 Degree Show on the Marching Podcast.
