Cornerstone Events

Black Convocation

Each fall, BSA hosts a Black Convocation. This event is a celebration of the accomplishment of the incoming Black first-years on their Harvard acceptances. The ceremony, which was an incredible presentation of unity and support, provided students with wisdom and guidance on what a Harvard experience entails while also welcoming them into the Black Harvard community.

Apollo Night

Apollo Night is BSA's annual talent show, featuring performances from acts within and beyond the Black Harvard community competing for a cash scholarship. All proceeds from the event go to a different local charity each year. This perennially sold out show is one of the most anticipated events on the black community calendar.

Black Legacy Ball

Every February, BSA has a celebration of Black Culture and the achievements of Black people at the College and beyond. The event, deemed “Black Legacy Ball” provides an opportunity for Black Students to gather to commemorate Black History Month and acknowledge the advances that students and faculty in our community have made.  It also includes an opportunity for us to invite and celebrate Black high schoolers, current undergraduates, and alumni in and outside of the Harvard community who have made significant strides in improving the lives of Black people everywhere.
