 The Saturday Academy is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and, to commemorate this milestone, we are holding a Saturday Academy Gala, on June 3, 2011, at The Muhammad Ali Center.  The program includes Courier-Journal columnist Betty Baye', former NBA and UofL Star Darrell Griffith, a performance by UofL African American Theater Program, and music by the Dave Clark Quintet.

Celebrating 20 years of excellence -- and Building for the Future

The Gala is more than just a celebration; it is also a fund-raiser.  As part of the University of Louisville's comprehensive capital campaign, we are establishing the Saturday Academy Endowment Fund to support a chair in Black Public History and support all Saturday Academy programs in perpetuity.

  • Read more about the goals and needs of this initiative in a special message from Dean Hudson and Audwin and Rae Helton, chairs of the Campaign Committee: Letter to supporters (link)

We hope to see YOU on June 3!
