This year's event is titled, "Black Resilience: Upward and Onward," and will boast an array of moving performances and tributes by students, faculty, and special guests!

Guests can "shop til they drop" from over a dozen black business vendors, taste cultural dishes, and take a visual and musical journey through black history.
