This past weekend, Spelman College and Morehouse College celebrated their homecoming and it was an event that will go down in the history books. The event was kicked off when an “Almost Christmas” food truck arrived on the Morehouse College campus. The students and tailgaters gathered around the food truck to partake in the delicious sweet potato pies, but the food truck didn’t contain just goodies. The students and tailgaters were surprised to see Keri Hilson serving them from the food truck.
