President Barack Obama gave an epic speech at Howard University’s commencement address on Saturday (May 7).
“When I was graduating, the main black hero on TV was Mr. T. Rap and Hip-Hop were counterculture, underground. Now, Shonda Rhimes owns Thursday night, and Beyoncé runs the world. We’re no longer only entertainers, we’re producers, studio executives. No longer small business owners. We’re CEOs, we’re mayors, representatives, Presidents of the United States.”
