BLACK HIGH SCHOOL

GRADUATION CELEBRATION

MAY 17, 2020  

 

​In 2018, BYLP established an advocacy arm to help families address a myriad of issues that resulted in unfair suspensions, expulsions and arrests of Black students across school campuses. Many of these students were prevented from participating in their high school commencement ceremonies. A Black Graduation Celebration validates the Black student's accomplishments, presents them before the community to be acknowledged for their perseverance and allows the community to come together in a display of love, unity and support. Our graduation ceremony may be the only graduation that some of our students will participate in or be recognized for this important milestone. All are welcome. 2020 DETAILS COMING SOON!!!
