MC, or Master of Ceremonies, is the person who hosts an event by introducing performers, speakers, or other participants. The term ‘master of ceremonies’ has been used since at least the 1600s, but the term ‘MC’ started to become heavily associated with rap music and hip-hop culture during the 1970s. The letters MC took on new meanings, such as “Microphone Controller,” “Move the Crowd,” and “Mic Checka.”  An MC is also called a host at times.

It’s the hosts’ job to keep the crowd entertained and the event flowing. They’re tasked with drawing energy and invoking excitement from the audience through storytelling and improvisation. HBCU Hosts at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are no different and are known around campus for their skills and stage presence.
