Last week, Lincoln University announced several distinguished people, including Master P, would receive honorary doctorates.

Dr. Benjamin Crump received an honorary Doctor of Laws and Dr. Michael Eric Dyson received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters. During last Friday’s ceremony, three others received honorary doctor of humane letters degrees: Nelson Henry Jr. (posthumously), Dr. Leonard Bethel, and Emery Wimbish. During Sunday’s commencement, Gloria Carter (mother to hip-hop billionaire and recording artist, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter), Dr. Charles V. Hamilton, and Master P received honorary doctor of humane letters degrees.

Earlier this year, Master P announced that his son, basketball star Hercy Miller, will attend an HBCU, Tennessee State University (TSU). Founded in 1912, TSU is located in Nashville. Famous celebrities who alumni include media entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey and Olympic sprint champion Wilma Rudolph.

Prominent schools had their eyes on the younger Miller, including Vanderbilt, LSU, USC, and UCLA. Despite the prestige associated with these universities, Miller wanted to show athletes that more quality options exist.

“I want to be a leader and a dream of mine and a goal of mine is to change the narrative,” Hercy Miller told the Tennessean. “I want to show people you don’t have to go to one of these big schools, Power Five conference schools, just to be great. There are a lot of great people who came out of HBCUs or mid-major schools. I want to be the next one.”
