The anniversary theme, “The Battle for Greatness,” unites all to commemorate the history of the college and promote the “Rising Up Mural Tour” for Hale Woodruff’s renowned “Amistad Murals.”
The festivities kick off Friday night with a coronation ceremony for Miss Talladega College Tami Johnson at 7 p.m. in the DeForest Chapel.
Saturday morning features a parade at 10 a.m. leading into the Tailgate Battle, Luncheon and Barbecue Battle.
At 3 p.m., the men’s and women’s basketball teams participate in a doubleheader with the President’s Alumni Reception shortly thereafter.
The weekend concludes with a convocation held at 9 a.m.
“We are so excited to recognize all of the returning alumni and celebrate Talladega’s founding,” college President Dr. Billy C. Hawkins said. “The theme, ‘Battle for Greatness,’ is in the grand spirit of our proud institution and (this) will be an amazing weekend.”
