Morgan State University to Award Honorary Degrees to Three “Exemplary Vanguards of Social Justice and the African-American Experience”

Morgan State University will award honorary degrees on Saturday to civil rights activist and former football player Colin Kaepernick; Morgan alum and filmmaker David E. Talbert; and Morgan alum David Burton, chief proponent in the Coalition for Excellence and Equity in Maryland Higher Education (HBCUs) vs. the State of Maryland lawsuit.

The three individuals are recognized as “exemplary vanguards of social justice and the African-American experience,” according to the Morgan State announcement.

Morgan State’s 145th Spring Commencement will take place at Hughes Memorial Stadium on May 21.

“Leadership, Integrity, Innovation, Diversity, Excellence and Respect are more than just words that appear on the flags that adorn our campus, or words that we utter casually when reciting our core values, they represent the embodiment of who we are and what a Morgan graduate stands for,” said Morgan State University President Dr. David K. Wilson. “With this notion in mind, we intentionally sought a collection of individuals who truly embody these principles, and thankfully we have assembled a trio of diverse voices who have bravely stood—and kneeled—for the betterment and advancement of the voiceless, the marginalized and the disenfranchised.”
