Coca-Cola Circle City Classic

Held in Indianapolis since 1984, this annual fall event is centered around a football game between teams from historically black colleges. It is also a celebration of the African-American community and a renewal of commitment to youth, with proceeds from the Classic going to the Indiana Black Expo Scholarship Program. The Indianapolis Black Alumni Council holds a college fair in conjunction with the Classic, giving students and parents an opportunity to visit with officials from more than 50 colleges and universities. Festive events include a golf outing, gala celebration, parade, and battle of the bands. The Classic is documented in historical text, photographs, and promotional materials.
