Support the heart and soul of Morehouse!
Dear Humanities Morehouse Men,
Earlier today, Fred Watkins '69, a member of the Humanities Advancement Council and Development Subcommittee Chair, sent you a letter. He asked all Humanities Men to take a step-in faith and contribute to Morehouse College during #GivingTuesday—Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
While the first step may not produce overwhelming change, it is powerful, offering a compass for those who wish to follow and make an impact. That's why we're asking you to take a step forward and contribute to the Humanities Division.
We know that many of you are contributing to Morehouse College, and we thank you. For those of you currently contributing, we ask that you consider taking the next step by committing to set up a recurring donation specifically to the Humanities Division.
If you are a frequent donor and commit to a recurring donation, you can encourage others to follow in your steps.
I have always told my students that consistency ensures success. The same applies to keeping Morehouse College financially healthy and vibrant. If all the Humanities Morehouse Men were to come together and financially support Morehouse College with a recurring gift, the possibilities would be endless.
Consistent giving to the Humanities Division ensures that we can better organize and implement special initiatives that provide Humanities students access to unique educational experiences.
I ask you, "If not Morehouse men and more precisely the Humanities men, then who?"
Finally, in the midst of all the recent social and political turmoil, I am compelled to recall something one of our fearless leaders, Malcolm X said, "Education is a passport to our future, for tomorrow it belongs to the people who prepare for it today." These words summarize why it is so crucial that we invest in and support Morehouse College. You are supporting the future generation of young black men coming up the stairs behind you.
So, I ask that you join Fred Watkins '69, Ray Richardson '74, Jefrey Jones '92, Floyd Carroll '81, Quinterrance Bell '12, Korby Wesley '12, and Koboi Simpson '92 in support of the Humanities Division as they reach out to you over the next few days.
In closing, have a wonderful, restful, and safe Thanksgiving. I look forward to talking with you on Tuesday, December 1.
Dr. Clarissa Myrick-Harris
Humanities Division Chair
