To follow-up to an earlier post, Hampton University did not ban twerking.

From Yuri Rodgers Milligan, Director of  University Relations-

There is picture of a slide circulating on social media sites that was a part of a presentation to Hampton University freshmen. The slide has been taken out of context. The presentation was on social media and cyber bullying and was titled “Sharing Your World Technologically.” The presenter was cautioning students about posting information and or pictures, that would tarnish their brand, on social media sites. The slide referenced “twerking” because of recent events and to get students’ attention. There was no statement about banning any form of dance or expression.

Twerk away, Hampton.

    Banning twerking at an HBCU is like banning keg perties at a majority school…won’t happen.

    That bourgeois mentality is the EXACT reason that I left Hampton back in the day. Found a more sound Black student population among a Predom. White Institution- SMH.

    1000% agree with you Kelley, that is why I left as well.

    LOL. The first time i saw the pic i honestly wasn’t surprised. When i applied to Hampton and went to visit, the young lady taking me on the tour told me that an official “housing” rule was that if you had someone of the opposite sex in you room, the door had to stay open and both feet had to be on the ground. Written just like that. Not that my college experience was going to be about having copious amounts of coitus, but that was 1 acceptance letter that i didn’t entertain.
