Black Graduation Celebration

Black Graduation students celebrating

Bridging our past with our present, the African American Cultural Celebration (ABCC) serves as a traditional rite of passage that recognizes and affirms students of African descent who have completed a rigorous journey through academia at the University of Southern California. This largely attended and highly anticipated event unites students, families, and friends through culture and achievement. An outstanding speaker is chosen each year who insights words of wisdom, encouragement, and adoration to the audience allowing all participants to evaluate their life experiences while empowering them to reach all future endeavors.
