Bringston University is a fictional HBCU
Most of us have heard of fictional HBCUs, but we’ve probably only seen them in movies or television series. Films such as School Daze and Drumline often feature fictional institutions. But what really makes a fictional institution a real one? It’s the popularity of a long-term endeavor. The fictional Bringston University, for instance, was inspired by a television series that was successful.
The story revolves around the sports teams at Bringston. There’s a scandal at the university that depletes the baseball team, but star pitcher Damon Sims decides to go to Bringston instead of entering the MLB draft. This scandal puts Marcus Turner under a lot of pressure to bring the team back to championship level. Then, the team’s star pitcher, Damon Sims, is kicked out of his first practice for mouthing off about the lack of talent on the team.
