President Obama's Howard U Commencement Speech
The Class of 2016 was graduating from Howard University today, and didn't realize that my cousin Derek was going to be in the audience getting his bachelors degree.(magna cum laude) and heading off to Meharry Medical School.
Hey, if you haven't noticed, brains run in my family ;)
My cousin along with the 2300 other HU grads and their friends and family in attendance got the amazing honor of having President Obama give the commencement address.at their graduation.
Here's today's commencement address for those of you who missed it.
