LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 6, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) launches its 25th Annual Los Angeles Black College Expo celebratory weekend with a $10,000 Divine 9 Step Show Competition from 7 pm – 10 pm, Friday, February 9, 2024, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Meeting Room 403, 1201 S. Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, California 90015.
Hosted by surprise celebrity guests, the 25th Anniversary Step Show features Sororities and Fraternities known as the Divine 9, competing for $10,000 in prize winnings. This energy-filled, inspirational event celebrates Black culture by blending African traditions with popular culture and rhythm.
This rich tradition that originated at most Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) is also known as Black Greek Letter Organizations. Today, hundreds of chapters at HBCUs and other institutions of higher learning have been formed.
“We wanted to kick off our 25th Anniversary by sharing not only the rich history and legacy of HBCUs, but to also show support of sororities and fraternities that commit countless hours volunteering to empower young people to seek higher education and the importance of giving back,” says NCRF Founder and CEO, Dr. Theresa Price.
A weekend of grand activities is planned for BCE’s 25th Anniversary. For tickets, please visit www.ncrfoundation.org or for more information call 877-427-4100.
