Barack Obama has kept a relatively low profile since leaving the White House more than three years ago, but today the former President will deliver not one but two virtual commencement addresses for this season of coronavirus pandemic.
Starting with Show Me Your Walk, HBCU Edition at 2 PM ET the ex-POTUS steps up as the marquee name for the two-hour livestreamed event for historically black colleges and universities.
However, Obama isn’t the only big name on the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accessible occasion with Kevin Hart, Steve Harvey, Vivica Fox Chris Paul, Debbie Allen, and Power’s Omari Hardwick among those all scheduled to appear.
I’ve always loved joining commencements––the culmination of years of hard work and sacrifice. Even if we can’t get together in person this year, Michelle and I are excited to celebrate the nationwide Class of 2020 and recognize this milestone with you and your loved ones. pic.twitter.com/ngR2ykx3A2
