Fresh off the series end of the iconic ABC sitcom Black-ish its star, Anthony Anderson, had another reason to be proud. The actor graduated from HBCU Howard University over the weekend and shared his good news in an Instagram post with the caption. “30 years in the making.”
“To quote Biggie, ‘IT WAS ALL A DREAM!'” Anderson wrote. “Words can’t begin to describe the emotional roller coaster [sic] I’m on right now. It’s literally been 30 years in the making. This spring I was finally able to complete the work to graduate from Howard University with a BFA degree from the Chadwick A Boseman College of Fine Arts! Yesterday was a full circle moment,” he continued. “It’s never too late! Things happen when they’re supposed to happen!”
Anderson dropped out of college his junior year because “he ran out of money.” He completed his dream of earning a degree by taking online courses from home.
The new graduate included pictures of the ceremony on social media with Howard Alum Taraji P. Henson, who gave the commencement address to the Class of 2022.
