In a "historically rare event," two black female students have been voted onto the University of Alabama's homecoming court, the Crimson White reports. The two women hope that their presence will pave the way for Alabama to crown its second-ever black homecoming queen. One important roadblock to securing a court position, besides the school's infamous Machine: "It was hard thinking of a slogan that rhymed with my first and last names," said candidate Sophia Francillon.
