Default Ice Cube Named Howard Homecoming Ambassador and Grand Marshal



Rapper/Actor Ice Cube will add a touch of West Coast flavor to Howard University's homecoming festivities in October.

The former NWA affiliate was recently tapped to serve as ambassador and grand marshal for the annual affair, which will be called Utopia: Pinnacle of Dreams.

Events slated for this year's homecoming include a yard fest, an alumni fashion a show/brunch, a comedy show, and an R&B concert.

"Homecoming is a wonderful opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate the rich legacy of Howard University in a relaxed atmosphere of friendship and family," said Howard president H. Patrick Swygert.

The 2006 homecoming will be especially memorable for Cube, who will also serve as a celebrity judge for the eighth annual Chevy Showcase of Bands before kicking off the school's game against the Morgan State Bears with a coin toss.

The showcase, featuring 25 bands, will be held during Howard's It's a Hollywood Howard Homecoming Parade.

In addition to Cube, judges will include showcase host Tyson Beckford, actress ZoŽ Saldana (Drumline, Guess Who); Rick Gonzalez (Old School, Biker Boyz, Coach Carter, and Roll Bounce); Ken L. (The Parkers), Lil X, Bethann Hardison, Lil' Mo; Hassan Johnson (The Wire), Brandon T. Jackson; Mobb Deep; Roman Rivera (Shaft and A Talent For Trouble), and radio personality Steph Lova, a Howard alumna.

The 2006 Howard University homecoming celebration will be held Oct. 6-15. The homecoming game starts at 1 p.m.
