Roland Martin talks to H. Patrick Swygert, President Emeritus at Howard University about the controversial decision to allow Diddy to speak at the 2014 Spring commencement, at the disapproval of some of its students.
“The decision to invite a commencement speaker is a decision of the board of trustees, typically made upon the recommendation of the President.” Swygert said.
Should Diddy be allowed to deliver the speech at a college graduation even though he didn’t dropped out? Does money make a difference? President Swygert answers that and more inside.
