Morehouse College

Although times change, Morehouse's mission remains steadfast: to produce academically superior, morally conscious leaders for the conditions and issues of today, whether "today" is post-Civil War or turn of the new millennium.

Martin Luther King Jr. led the country through one of its most transforming civic movements; David Satcher resuscitated the issues of health care disparity and access; Maynard Jackson taught the world the value of diversity and equal access as the first African American mayor of Atlanta; Donn Clendenon scored in the history annals and was part of a miracle when he was named a World Series MVP; and Shelton "Spike" Lee continues to challenge how the world views blacks in life with critically acclaimed films.

All helped change the world. All are Morehouse men.
