Event Description:
The 2018 year marks the 50th anniversary of the enrollment of our first Black students at Converse College. We reflect on our heritage and the work still ahead of us with a year-long series, Celebrating Courage and Charting the Future: Commemorating 50 years of Black Women at Converse

The 50th anniversary will be commemorated during a special Opening Convocation service in the fall. In celebration of this milestone, special elements have been added to Convocation including the procession of Black alumnae and a performance by the Gospel Choir.
