YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS EXCLUSIVE HOMECOMING EVENT
Born out of the 2018 Howard University Student Protest, alumni quickly galvanized with the mission to support and enhance the excellence of our beloved Alma Mater – Howard University.
In our efforts to form this organization, we were initially called “HU Resist Alumni”, in solidarity with the students, then we became “Mecca Minded: The Capstone Project” and as of September 21, 2018 , we have incorporated as The Capstone Group with dynamic and accountable new leadership (core members: Claudette Johnson Berry, Maria P. Jones, Michelle James, Alphonse McCullough) that is ready to share and exchange ideas with you at our inaugural event during this year’s Homecoming. Please join us to help ensure the sustainable future of our university.
