Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue

be newsA father and son will be graduating together this weekend at Morehouse College’s commencement, the Grio reports.

Dorian Joyner, Sr. started Morehouse back in 1984, but dropped out. Three years ago, when his son was a freshman, he decided to go back and finish his degree.

When Joyner, Jr. heard his father was coming back to Morehouse, he was shocked at first. He said: ‘oh, you’re coming back to visit some of your friends?’ And [Dorian Senior] said ‘no, I’m coming back to be a student.’ The son  said — can you repeat that?”
