Nice list, but what about Benjamin T. Jealous President and CEO of the NAACP and graduate of Columbia University.
Jealous absolutely holds an important and prominent position, but I don’t think even he would classify himself as a celebrity, at least not in the context of this particular post.
What about Barrack Obama he went to Harvard
he went to Columbia

Great list! However, the entry on Tyra is incorrect. I am a student at Harvard Business School and she is not a two-year MBA student. However, she did pay for and attend the Executive Education program meant for business leaders- these programs range from roughly 3-6 weeks. And it’s still an impressive accomplishment for the model turned media mogul. This should be corrected.
good news to my ears
Impressive list, though Tyra Banks’ inclusion for showing up at an executive program takes away from the list.
– First lady Michelle Obama (Princeton’85)
– Jazz great Stanley Jordan (Princeton ’81)
– Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas (Yale Law ’74)
Great list, but lets just quietly leave Clarence Thomas off that list please… If he’s a celebrity he’s known in infamy.
You claim he is Infamous for successfully defending himself against false accusations? He’s a great educated black man you just don’t like that he’s a conservative
Don’t forget Dartmouth grad Aisha Tyler.
