HBCU Homecoming: Virginia Union 2022

Photos from a beautiful day on the campus of Virginia Union University.

RICHMOND, VA — Virginia Union celebrated its 2022 homecoming on a beautiful, temperate early October 7 that was made for an HBCU Homecoming. The game was a mismatch as nationally-ranked Virginia Union crushed Elizabeth City State 49-0 to stay in control of the CIAA North race. But as with all HBCU homecomings, the football action itself was only a portion of what drew students, alumni and fans to the campus.

Here are some of the sights from the game and the atmosphere.
