Grace Holt Celebration
The Annual Grace Holt Celebration serves the purpose to engage our community of faculty, staff, students, and alumni with emerging scholars and pressing issues in Black Studies as well as provide a space for reconnection and networking. We believe that training in Black Studies is critical for our students as they enter an increasingly tumultuous world and that we provide an important companion to many professions ranging from health care, to business, law, and public policy. This was Grace Holt's vision and we are committed to sustaining it even in challenging times. Each year, we honor Grace Holt's legacy and celebrate our community through the Grace Holt Luncheon where we present student awards and the Grace Holt Keynote Lecture featuring a scholar in the field of Black Studies.
