Harvard Will Host its first black only graduation this year.
Harvard University will host a graduation ceremony exclusively for black students, organisers have announced.
More than 170 students and 530 guests have signed up to attend the event, which will be held 23 May.
All-black ceremonies have been held at other US universities, such as Stanford and Columbia, but this will be a historic first for Harvard.
The event was crowdfunded by students who raised over $27,000 (£21,000). This year, the all-black ceremony is open only to graduate students, but organisers hope to open it up to undergraduates next year.
“This is an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s black excellence and black brilliance,” Michael Huggins told The Root website.
Mr Huggins, who is graduating with a master’s in public policy from the Harvard Kennedy School, added: “It’s an event where we can see each other and our parents and family can see us as a collective, whole group. A community.”
