The atmosphere was lit, the parties were hype and the games were shockers all week at the 2017 CIAA Tournament in Charlotte. The annual conference championship attracts a very large crowd of HBCU basketball enthusiasts, alumni, fans and revelers to the Queen City and this year was not a disappointment.

Each year, the tournament introduces a new generation to Black college tradition, creating new supporters and gives us a new reason to be proud of the culture.

Take a look at our gallery of photos from the event, which celebrates the history tradition and culture of Black colleges.
