“Yale’s race-segregated graduation ceremony follows a trend taking place in U.S. higher education.”
This is happening at schools across the country this year. It’s like a memo went out or something.

Yale University hosts ‘Black Graduates’ celebration
Yale University is hosting a race-specific graduation ceremony for Black students this year.
Yale will host a “Black Graduates’ Celebration” as part of this year’s commencement addresses, according to their website.
The “Black Graduates’ Celebration” is put on by the Afro-American Cultural Center, also known as “The House.”
“Since 1969, The House has nurtured and encouraged generations of Black Yalies to become some of world’s leading scholars, activists and professionalss,” according to the center’s website.
The Afro-American Cultural Center describes segregated graduation as a way to “gather to celebrate the tremendous accomplishments of our Black graduates across the college, graduate, and professional schools.”
A registration page for the graduation states:
During the Black Graduates’ Ceremony, each graduate is presented with a custom-made Kente cloth stole by a relative, partner, mentor, or friend of their choosing. Participants typically choose someone who has played an instrumental role in their Yale career or someone they care deeply about. Graduates will submit their stoler’s information in early May.

Good. Now, the other graduates can have a ceremony where graduates are applauded with polite clapping, and not whooping and calling out.
please don’t forget the dancing to tribal drums
Good ol’ Mr Yale still owning slaves. Keeps them away from others in a special House
