Be sure to join our friends at DPAN.TV tonight (Saturday) at 8 PM Eastern time for the “Graduate Together 2020” virtual graduation hosted by former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama.
The event will be interpreted and captioned.
The Obamas say over the past few months, they have received dozens of requests from around the globe, asking them to address graduating classes whose in-person commencement events have been canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Initially the Obamas respectfully declined.
But then they received a tweet from a high school senior from Los Angeles that said “in an unprecedented time, it would give us great comfort to hear your voice.”
Obama acknowledged that that request along with dozens of others played a role in his decision to host a virtual graduation.
Other special guests will include NBA star Lebron James, soccer star Megan Rapinoe and musicians the Jonas Brothers, Pharrell Williams and Bad Bunny.
So be sure to check it out tonight at 8 PM Eastern time on DPAN.TV.
