You'll Be Climbing.

Honorary Degree-Cicley Tyson, scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. and legendary baseball player Hank Aaron each received the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters.

In the voice of one of her most stirring characters, Miss Jane Pittman: “I would say, you are the one – each one of you. But I would ask you to remember that life ain’t going to be no crystal stair…But all the time, you’ll be climbing, reaching landings, turning corners and sometimes going in the dark where there ain’t no light. So I’m going to ask you not to turn back.”
-Cicley Tyson

On that day, at that school and with the words of Ms.Tyson my life changed. Morehouse College is a magical place.
God bless you all.
