Meaning and history

Alcorn State Braves Logo history

The old Alcorn State Braves logo, which was introduced in 1996, already featured the “A,” which can be also seen on the current emblem. The shade of purple was a bit lighter and brighter than the current one, and the letter was thinner.

The 2004 logo already had a bolder “A.” The word “Alcorn,” which replaced the middle bar, grew bolder and larger, too.

Eventually, in 2017, the shades of purple and gold were slightly altered, as was the type featured on the word “Alcorn.”
