The Tom Joyner Foundation is working with Morris Brown College to raise funds to continue their legacy of educating students. Through their “$20 Million By 2020” campaign, the school is calling on all alumni and supporters to donate money for students, accreditation and school facilities.
In the video below, current Morris Brown students talk about why they chose this institution to further their education.
2018 Morris Brown graduate Jody Mayfield created the inspiring video below in honor of his alma mater. Read more about how he created it here.
History of Morris Brown College
Morris Brown College, founded in 1881 by the African Methodist Episcopal Church, is a private, coeducational, liberal arts college engaged in teaching and public service with special focus in leadership, management, entrepreneurship and technology. The College is proud of its tradition of serving the educational needs of the best and brightest young minds, while simultaneously providing educational support to students who might not otherwise receive the opportunity to compete on the college level. Students fitting the latter are given the tools they need to increase their potential for earning a college degree.
This is a formula that has proven itself time and again. Among our outstanding alumni are:
Isaac Blythers, former President of Atlanta Gas Light Company
Eula L. Adams, Executive Vice President for First Data Corporation
Albert J. Edmonds, Retired Lieutenant General of the United States Air Forces
The late Reverend Dr. Hosea Williams, civil rights leader
Thomas J. Byrd, actor of television, film and stage
Pulitzer prize-winning author, James A. McPherson.
Adams and Edmonds were cited recently by Fortune Magazine among the nation’s top African-American corporate executives. The list of our graduates and their accolades go on and on.
