可口可乐校区比赛(Coca-Cola Circle City Classic)
地方性遗产

可乐跟大学足球有什么关系?自1984年以来,印地安纳州的印地安纳波里每年都会为了颂扬境内的非裔美国人,举办可口可乐校区比赛。可口可乐校区比赛是一场足球赛,参赛队伍则是各个富有历史渊源的黑人学院。而球赛所得则会捐给印地安纳州的黑人博览学术计划(Black Expo Scholarship Program),这个基金会专门提供奬学金给那些有心向学的年青人。

什么是富有历史渊源的黑人学院?泛指那些美国境内的学院,当它们建校时,非裔美国人尚不能进入有白人学生就读的学校。这些传授高等学识的机构仍在运行中,拥有不同背景的美国人可在此处获取学院教育。

球赛进行时,印地安纳波里的黑人校友会也会举办学院博览会。这个博览会提供了一个机会给学生跟家长,让他们可以跟来自50多所大学及学院的校务人员会话。球赛进行时,也会颁发一年一度的奬学金,因而这项盛会不只显示了非裔美国人的经济能力,而且还展示了教育的重要性。


What does Coke have to do with college football? Well, every year since 1984, Indianapolis, Indiana, has celebrated its African American community with the Coca-Cola Circle City Classic, a football game between teams from historically black colleges. The profits from the game go to the Indiana Black Expo Scholarship Program, a fund that gives money to young people for school.

What's a historically black college? It is a college that was established in the United States at a time when African Americans were not allowed to attend college with white students. These institutions of higher learning still exist today, providing Americans of all backgrounds with a college education.

The Indianapolis Black Alumni Council also holds a college fair along with this football game. The fair gives students and parents an opportunity to visit with officials from more than 50 colleges and universities. The events demonstrate African American economic strength and show the importance of education, while awarding annual scholarships with the proceeds of the football game.
