A mother’s prayer answered

2020 ‘A CANDLE IN THE DARK’ GALA

COURTESY BY MOREHOUSE COLLEGE

Morehouse College Class of 1994 alumnus Verdun S. Perry brought listeners to tears when he described how overhearing his mother pray, then later surviving the sudden death of his college roommate, motivated him to succeed. Morehouse celebrated its 153rd anniversary during the 32nd annual awards ceremony recognizing six high-achieving Black men. Perry and another awardee, Adebayo O. Ogunlesi, each donated $1 million to the college during their acceptance speeches.
