The Black Graduation Committee would like to invite you to the 2021 Black Graduation Ceremony!

Since June of 1997, the Black Graduation Ceremony has been a signature event celebrating the uncompromising fortitude of the University of Washington’s graduating class of Black students. Students, friends, and families attend the ceremony in anticipation of bearing witness to poignant speeches from speakers and ethereal renditions of the Black National Anthem.

Similarly, to last year, our circumstances have required us to get creative in hosting a virtual ceremony, but the integrity, meaning, and beauty of the ceremony is as strong as ever. With that said, we invite you to save the date for our 2021 virtual Black Graduation Ceremony!
