The 48th Annual Ebony Ball

Now in its 48th year, the African American Society’s Ebony Ball has been a celebration of the history and future of the Black community at Case Western Reserve University. This year’s theme, “Keep The Fire Burnin’,” emphasizes the importance of uplifting and supporting our community. It will be a night of food, heartfelt performances (The Voices of God Gospel Choir), guest speeches and plenty of dancing. Those who attend will be treated to dinner and take-home goodies, and the evening will conclude with a lantern release. 

The event will be held Sunday, Nov. 21, at 6 p.m. in the Thwing Center ballroom. All members of the campus community are welcome and encouraged to attend. Red or black formal attire is preferred. Undergraduate and graduate students from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Institute of Music, and Cleveland Institute of Art can attend for free; staff can attend for $5, and all other guests can attend for $10.
