Controversy surrounds Morehouse baccalaureate ceremony | www.ajc.com

As Morehouse College prepares for President Obama to speak at commencement, controversy has engulfed the ceremony that will take place the day before.

A prominent Philadelphia pastor who criticized Obama in an editorial last month says he was disinvited to speak at the college’s baccalaureate ceremony, taking place May 18. Alumni sent letters and posted on social media to protest how Bright Hope Baptist Church senior pastor Kevin Johnson was treated, saying it goes against the Morehouse tradition of open dialogue and intellectual freedom.
