Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, November 16, 2014

Weekly Calendar

There is nothing comparable to the Historic Black College/University experience.  Nothing!  That is not to disqualify the college/university experience of others, but I am extremely grateful that I attended a Historic Black College/University.  The experience of being surrounded by persons whose history, culture, spiritual/religious faith, societal encounter is similar to mine, validated my humanity, empowered by determination, and strengthened my resolve to be resourceful to our people and the broader, expanding community.

 My experience at Morehouse College and the Atlanta University Center opened so many doors of opportunity and witness.  Through that experience, I began to see the larger picture of Africanism.  Students came from around the globe to learn and study, network and fellowship, to participate and patronize institutions who understood our plight and progress.
