Coahoma Community College is a HBCU community college in Clarksdale, Mississippi in north central Mississippi towards Memphis. It is a traditional community college in the sense of offering two year degrees, primarily in nursing and health aide fields, business, cosmetology/barbering, culinary arts, and the trades such as training for electricians, welding, carpentry, masonry, etc. It was established as the first community college for Black students in 1949 as a post-secondary route for the students of the Coahoma Agricultural high school during segregation.

Coahoma is unique compared to some of the other HBCU community colleges covered not just because of the breadth of its offerings, comparable to most mid-size to large PWI community colleges minus engineering, but also due to its rather large athletic program. It has football, basketball, and baseball programs for men and basketball for women. It also has a real marching band and cheer squad as well as its own football stadium and basketball gym that are of higher quality than many four year HBCUs. Because of this it has several notable alumni in the professional leagues, though they usually transfer to four year institutions after finishing Coahoma before being drafted.

Coahoma also has the cheapest tuition amongst higher education institutions in Mississippi.

Above the fray.
*Respect you continuing with the series as the I-95 construction has altered your commuting time and schedule.*


Great profile. School functions well, serving the needs of the students and the local economy.
Encouraging information, especially the completion rates, relative to schools of comparable resources.
Nursing major numbers for the CCs in the series have been good.

I get impression that it receives donations from the D1 sports programs that they are feeders for. Would explain the quality of their athletic facilities. Great option for those schools to send recruits to get them to develop academically, and athletically.

CC’s in Mississippi aren’t what they used to be because it’s not the farming systems for the acc/sec

But i got a few homeboys that went there for football and they got stories for days

Had one cat they called spaceghost, that played for one of the other sip cc’s nikka rolled his jersey up to show his abs rocked a dark black visor and used to say “easy money” my one homie played tackle the other was te, they wanted to chip him, my boy (te) said he tried to cut block him, spaceghost pushed him in the dirt picked him up tossed him, then mashed my other boy at tackle to make the sack

Had a dude on the team forgot his name, said that nikka was so tho’d but got some weightlifting gloves put them on and was like damn these are nice proceeds to punch one of his teammates out, then gets on the bench and puts up numbers

If you’ve ever listened to the Loic podcast (which i hope you all do support your fellow coli black men talking about college football)

But they played jones cc when Peter warrick was there, the wr coach was the hc’s wife and she played no games, they threw a hitch to Pete he dropped it, they said she was damn near on the field and said run it again and you better not fukkin drop it, he runs the same hitch catches it and makes a house call
