Presentation Transcript

Past, present and future came together on a thunderstorm-filled Sunday, as President Barack Obama gave the commencement (graduation) speech at historically black, all-male Morehouse College (Georgia), where the Rev. Martin Luther King and many other prominent African-Americans spent their formative years. After opening with several one-liners, and more smiles than we\'ve seen from him in the damage-control-filled recent weeks, Obama delivered a serious message to the class of 2013. During his speech the president offered “nobody is going to give you anything that you have not earned."
