Nigerians Gave 151st Howard University Convocation a Black Magic Touch

Howard University is a private, federally chartered historically black university in Washington, D.C. It is categorized by the Carnegie Foundation as a research university with higher research activity and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

Howard prepares diverse, talented and ambitious students to learn, lead and embody excellence in truth and service.

As Howard celebrated its 151st Commencement Convocation Ceremony on Saturday, May 11, 2019, at the main campus of the University’s Upper quadrangle, the graduates had a lot to be proud of and excited about.

There were 96 graduating medical students with 46 of them as Nigerians. 27 Honourary doctorate degrees were also awarded 16 of the awards given to Nigerian graduates.

This awesome feat was said to have never been recorded before in the history of the university. The Nigerian graduates completely stole the face of the event and gave it a black magic touch.

Ex-President, Barrack Obama, who graced the occasion as the commencement speaker talked about racism. He encouraged Nigerians to be more proud of their colour. He further said they should embrace who they are and believe in ourselves for they can achieve greatness if they never give up.
