CNN’s Van Jones Tells Newest Morehouse Men They Must Lead in This New Era
The newest group of Morehouse Men must lead the charge of a new, post-Obama era, CNN political analyst Van Jones told the Class of 2017 during Morehouse College’s 133rd Commencement ceremony Sunday. “You graduate as the first Morehouse Men to confront a radically new era,” he said. “For you, having a president who looked like you was no big deal. “In order for you now to make the contribution you are called to make, you have to both look backward and forward,” Jones added. “Now, begins a new era, and you leave here with a new set of opportunities and obligations.”
Jones addressed the Class of 2017 in the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel as heavy rain forced Morehouse officials to move the Commencement ceremony indoors from the College’s usual Commencement site, the historic Century Campus.
