Sunday, May 19

Today, President Joe Biden will deliver the commencement address at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia.

Director Steve Benjamin of the White House Office of Public Engagement visited the historically black men’s liberal arts college ahead of the president’s visit to assure students and faculty that President Biden’s message will focus on his hopes for graduates’ futures and the celebration of their accomplishments.

Director Benjamin also met to verify the security of the event, as antisemitic protests and demonstrations have taken place on many university campuses across the nation.

Later, the president will travel to Detroit, Michigan, to deliver the keynote speech at the NAACP’s 69th Annual Fight for Freedom Fund dinner.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the safety of the president as he travels to Atlanta.
  • For wisdom for President Biden as he delivers the commencement address at Morehouse College.
  • For Secret Service agents, campus police, and local law enforcement officers as they seek to maintain security, both at the commencement and campaign events.
