Uhhhh…

Chris Tucker Getting Honorary Degree From Morris Brown

An HBCU many thought was defunct is continuing on and giving an entertainer an honorary degree.

During Morris Brown University’s commencement, actor/comedian Chris Tucker will receive an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts degree, reports The AJC.

The May 20 ceremony at Atlanta’s Big Bethel AME church, seventeen students will graduate and hear a commencement speech from Dennis Kimbro, an author and business school professor at Clark Atlanta University.

Other honorary doctorate degrees will be given to NBA Hall of Famer and David T. Howard High School graduate Walter “Clyde” Frazier.

Back in 2002 Morris Brown lost its accreditation so it’s surprising to see that there are students still enrolled and even more surprising that the University is giving out honorary degrees.

In 2012 Morris Brown also sold many of its buildings to Arthur Blank to avoid closing altogether in a bankruptcy filing.
