Black Graduation 2016: A Celebration of Excellence is a community based celebration of our young people being on the right side of the graduation rate and on a trajectory to success!
The event will honor recent graduates recognizing their accomplishment as well as the infinite possibilities for their futures. Special guests who exemplify excellence in their fields will pass on words of wisdom to our young graduates as they prepare for success in their next phase of life. Performances and special prizes will round out the night as we show the graduates how special and significant their accomplishment is.
Not only will we honor and recognize this important milestone in their lives but in the tradition of many African cultures we will mark this event as a rite of passage into adulthood with wisdom from elders in the community with the goal of providing them with a mindset that strives amplify the excellence already within them.
