Given the inclusion of corp-concepts in a few show-style bands on your list, I would consider expanding it a bit.

Check out the Marching 110 of Ohio U.

You're right. Showstyle and HBCU Marching Band are not mutually exclusive terms.

I've changed the title since I'm looking for the HBCU Marching Band programs for Black History Month.

I knew about Coahoma. They are on the list.

Virginia University of Lynchburg doesn't have a marching band anymore. I talked to the former band director recently.

I also can't find any evidence that rust College still has a marching band.

All of their videos are from a few years back and there' no mention of a Marching Band anyplace on their website.

I will however add

Simmons College of Kentucky

and Jarvis Community College to our list.
