SAMUEL L. GRAVELY JR.

GRAVELY CELEBRATION EXPERIENCE

NIGHTS TO REMEMBER

A sunset reception. A starlit evening. An opportunity to experience community leaders, celebrities, and students who exemplify the trailblazing qualities of VADM Samuel L. Gravely Jr.—the U.S. Navy’s first African American vice admiral.

Our annual event is held on the fantail of Battleship IOWA during Black History Month. It’s a festive affair with food, drinks, music and presentations.
