African/African-American Graduation 2019 – “Reclaiming Our Narrative: Looking Back and Moving Forward!

6 March 2017

The Peralta Colleges’ 2019 African and African-American Graduation ceremony is a pre-commencement celebration to honor African and African-American students who, through unyielding determination, have successfully completed an associate degree and or certificate from a Peralta College. The ceremony is representative of African and African-American culture and heritage and embraces the values of community and scholarship.

We are also proud to announce that the Peralta Association of African American Affairs (PAAAA) 2019 Scholarship recipients from each of the colleges will be recognized at this year’s graduation program.

“Reclaiming Our Narrative: Looking Back and Moving Forward!” is the theme for this year’s graduation. Acting Chancellor, Frances L. White, Ph.D. has agreed to serve as our keynote speaker. Dr. White’s remarks and the telling of “her story”, particularly as a former graduate of the Peralta Colleges, will be inspirational to our African/African-American students, their families, Peralta faculty, administrators, and staff.

Reserved and secure parking will be provided in the church’s parking lot for trustees, faculty, staff, and administrators. We ask that Peralta faculty, staff, and administrators dress in academic regalia or African attire for the event. Please feel free to do the same or to wear whatever you should choose. We recommend that you arrive by 10:30 a.m. to participate in a group photo and the processional into the sanctuary at the beginning of the program. This year, faculty, staff, and administrators in the procession will be seated on stage.
