Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin will address Tennessee State University graduate students at an indoor ceremony on Friday, May 6 in the Gentry Center Complex and Vice President Kamala Harris will deliver the keynote address for the undergraduate commencement on Saturday, May 7 in Hale Stadium.

University officials say nearly 900 students will receive degrees in various disciplines.

“We are excited to have the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris and Mayor Randall Woodfin of Birmingham, two trailblazers and history makers, deliver the keynote address for our commencement ceremonies,” said TSU President Glenda Glover.

“Commencement marks a major milestone in our students’ lives, but to have the Vice President of the United States as your guest speaker makes this moment even more special for our students and their families. I believe they will also appreciate the fact that both Vice President Harris and Mayor Woodfin are HBCU graduates, a testament to the caliber of students TSU and other HBCUs produce. The TSU family looks forward to both ceremonies and featured speakers.”

Woodfin is a graduate of Morehouse College and Harris is a graduate of Howard University.
