It is a good day to be a Morehouse Man!

“Where you live shouldn’t determine whether you get educated. Where you go to school shouldn’t determine whether you get textbooks. The opportunity you access should be determined by the fierceness of your intellect, the courage in your creativity and the grit that allows you to overcome expectations that weren’t set high enough.” #MorehouseGrad2019
The impact of this gift is destined to change the world. Nearly 400 college educated Black men will be graduating from Morehouse all at the same time and free from the student debt that financially cripples and holds many people back from achieving their dreams in their 20s and 30s. These men will be free to explore their passions and change their communities in a way that many cannot.
