Welcome, to Be Black Go Blue, a global portal for University of Michigan Black Alumni. Here, we honor the legacy of Michigan excellence and the institution of Black American fortitude. We are the shelter of like mind, heart, and soul. Here, we believe in your individuality, because it defines our social destiny and endorses our common goal.
We are Michigan. We are BAM I, II, and III. We are in the NBA, NASA, Congress, and behind prison bars. We are CEOs, unemployed and superstars. We are from posh suburbs and straight out of the hood. We are all that is bad about Black America; we are all that is good. We are all that is known about Black America. We are all that is misunderstood.
Hail yes! Give Black America a standing ovation that is long over due, and oh hail yes,Go Blue! Most of all hail yes to you, for a willingness to pay a price to make a dream come true. Come be a Michigan Difference, come live an African American dream, cause you in da' house of da' be Black, go Blue thing. -W.A. Gordon, Ph.D. President
