Saturdays in autumn is college football day. One football event that’s happening Saturday at Soldier Field: The Chicago Football Classic. For the last 18 years, Soldier Field has been home to the historically Black College and University tradition. Complete with a battle of the bands, it’s about more than the gridiron sport for thousands of African Americans. Ronald Collins is the executive director of the Chicago Football Classic and he joins us with more on this tradition, which this year includes a matchup between the Howard University Bisons and the Morgan State University Bears.
