Circle city classic: in 1983, Indiana Black Expo organizers had a desire to create an opportunity to showcase academic excellence amongst the nation's historically Black colleges and universities. That year, Mississippi valley state and grambling university came together during the first ever circle city classic. However, the circle city classic is not just a football game. Academic excellence is the priority and in order to achieve this goal, the organization hosts a college fair featuring historically Black colleges and universities; college preparedness workshops are hosted across the city and scholarships are awarded to area students.
