This year's 23rd Annual “Rites of Passage” Kente Celebration was held on Friday, May 25th, 2018 at Monterey Peninsula College. MPC welcomed Dr. Edward C. Bush President of Cosumnes River College to speak to the students, faculty, family,  and friends attending the event.  Dr. Bush challenged the graduate and transfer students to continue their journey and to remember the overwhelming adversity that their ancestors faced when coming to this nation - and to honor them through their actions as they move on to the next phase in their lives. To view the entire ceremony and listen to Dr. Bush and other celebrated guest speakers at the event, please check out the Rites of Passage video that is embedded on this page.
