The University of Georgia will hold a ceremony to dedicate its newest residence hall as Black-Diallo-Miller Hall on Aug. 4 at 10 a.m.

The event is open to news media.

The building is named in honor of Harold Alonza Black, Mary Blackwell Diallo and Kerry Rushin Miller, the first African American students to enroll as freshmen and complete their undergraduate degrees at UGA.

Black-Diallo-Miller Hall will house 525 first-year students in double occupancy rooms beginning this fall, the 60th anniversary of the year Black, Diallo and Miller enrolled as freshmen.

Construction of the five-story, $50 million project began in December 2020.
