Black CelebratoryThe Black Celebratory celebrates the commonalties and differences that characterize the experiences of African Americans and other students at the University of Michigan. In upholding the expectation of the first Black Celebratory in 1993, this program serves as an example of the University of Michigan's commitment to diversity and to African American students.
The Black Celebratory contributes to the academic and social progress of all students by providing programs and activities that promote the communal striving and sense of accountability that help students to achieve. The ceremony acknowledges the value and uniqueness of the African American experience and serves to commemorate the accomplishments of students who participate in the Black Celebratory.
We, the University of Michigan Black Celebratory Planning Committee, institute this annual celebration to honor, respect, and remember those from our past and present communities who could only dream of the opportunity to graduate from an institution of higher learning. This ceremony marks a tradition of valuing our cultural offerings not only to the University but to beyond, to the world community.
