Kente Graduation Ceremony
"Many hands make light work." - African Proverb

Since 1997, we have known that our Black graduates look forward to UW's Kente Graduation Ceremony, where their families place their Kente stole around their shoulders and give them a hug as they walk across the stage. In our newest realities of physically-distant everything and Zoom events, as a committee we are striving to not only invest in the technologies to make this year's celebration extra special, but also build our fund for when we are in person again and can celebrate BIG with Classes 2020 and 2021. 

As a committee, we ask that you join us in supporting these incredibly bright students through a gift to the Kente Ceremony Fund

We know that our community is powerful when we work together. 

Thank you for helping us celebrate the accomplishments of these deserving students.
