  • The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr, noted civil rights leader and human rights activist, was the keynote speaker as more than 345 individuals celebrated their graduation at Morgan State University’s December commencement. The graduation exercises in the Talmadge Hill Field House marked the University’s 50th anniversary commemoration of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.“Fifty years ago, this important legislation made it possible for all people in this country, particularly African Americans, to exercise their right to vote…’ said Dr. David Wilson, president of Morgan State University. “And as we pause to celebrate 50 years since enactment of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we are fortunate that our students were able to share in this milestone with a longtime champion of civil rights.” Honorary doctorates were also presented to Autherine Lucy Foster, another civil rights pioneer who helped to desegregate the University of Alabama, and Morgan State’s civil rights pioneers from 1947-1963 who were responsible for desegregating theaters and lunch counters in Baltimore.
