Hawks to host third annual HBCU Night

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks will host their third annual HBCU Night presented by Chase on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at State Farm Arena.

The team dedicates this night to celebrating the educational excellence and unique culture of the more than 100 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), originally founded as institutions of higher learning for African Americans, and the Black Greek Letter Organizations of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, collectively referred to as the Divine Nine (D9). The game against the Boston Celtics, tipping off at 7:30 p.m., is the team’s final Unity Night of the first half of the season and will feature the Hawks MLK Nike City Edition uniforms and matching court.

“The Atlanta Hawks are thrilled to highlight the legacy and influence of Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the Black Greek Letter Organizations of the Divine Nine in Atlanta and throughout the world,” said Camye Mackey Chief People, Diversity and Inclusion Officer for the Hawks and State Farm Arena. “The wealth and breadth of talent from these important institutions have made huge contributions to our staff, business partners, and community, those deserve to be celebrated as a part of our rich culture.”
