The African American Male Congress will celebrate its 4th annual baccalaureate ceremony with featured speaker Rev. Jesse Jackson today at 4 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel, said Curtis Eatman, president of the AAMC.
Baccalaureate serves as the culminating event for students who want to join the congress, Eatman said. Students are required to go through an eight-week training period, at the end of which they attend the baccalaureate ceremony and become full members.
Eatman said the congress picked Jackson because the event will give people the opportunity to meet someone who marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. and who did great things for civil rights.
‘He inspires us,’ he said.
Tickets for the ceremony are free and open to the public in the Schine Student Center box office, Eatman said.
