16 Graduation Caps From Black Students That Will Make You Proud, Laugh and SMH
It's commencement season and grads everywhere are capping off their college careers with one last hurrah — a witty message on their mortarboards.
Everyone is doing it, but the cardboard squares on the hats of black alums have featured some of the funniest, most thoughtful and hell-yeah-that's-right statements.
Here's a look at the best grad-cap slogans from black students across the country:
1. She's in formation — with her degree.
2. She kept her head in dem books.
"The only D I got is my degree."
3. A black man's success should be on display.
