A Unique and Inspirational Graduation Address

By Laura Driscoll | College

Donovan Livingston, a Ed.M. 2016 graduate from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, gave one of the more powerful 5 minute speeches on race, inequity, and education I have seen. Beautiful and inspirational. Lift off.

“An injustice is telling them they are stars,

Without acknowledging night that surrounds them.

Injustice is telling them education is the key,

While you continue to change the locks.”
