Black grads matter

Richmond High School held its first-ever black graduation ceremony this year, honoring African American students from area high schools for their academic achievements. Event organizers from the Black Student Union offered an opportunity for African American students to participate in a ceremony that had a strong cultural emphasis. “It gives the students a chance to be together and see each other in a positive light, not anything negative. It was good to put the younger students with the older kids to show them if you keep doing good, you can go further.” Get the full story on Richmond Pulse.
