Located in the Nation’s Capital, the YBAA-DC Chapter is dedicated to serving the Yale Black Alumni and the larger community of the DC Metropolitan area. Our events reflect the rich culture, and the relevant activities that melt together in this area of transplants and transitory young black professionals. Our events include arts, media, public policy and cultural events that reflect the melting pot of black Yalies in the area. We work closely with the Yale Club of Washington DC and continue to increase our name and mission in the DC area.
