HBCU Marching Bands make Reality TV Debut


We love our black marching bands. What would black college football be without those high-stepping majorettes and the rhythmic drumlines and horn sections that make such glorious spectacles of the HBCU experience?

Well, if you didn’t attend a black college and have never been to a black college football game, you have your chance to check it out starting tonight on ESPN’s five-part series “The Battle,” which starts at 6:30 p.m. on ESPNU. Think of it as a real-life version of “Drumline.” The show follows the famed Grambling State University Tiger marching band from training camp to the Bayou Classic, where the band and its football team take on rival Southern University.
