Howard University just did something super coolโ€”literally. They've launched the first-ever HBCU figure skating team, making history and breaking the ice in a sport where diversity's been, let's say, thin on the ground. It's not just about nailing those jumps and spins; it's about opening the sport to more Black athletes and showing that HBCUs can lead the way in any field.

Let's give it up for Wilberforce, flipping the script and setting the bar high!
