Anthony Anderson to Deliver Commencement Speech at Virginia Union University

“Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson will deliver the commencement speech at Virginia Union University in Richmond next month.

The university-wide virtual ceremony is slated for May 8 at 10 a.m., with individual schools holding virtual celebrations afterward, Virginia Union announced.

“Our students’ lives mirror many of the themes characterized in the show ‘black-ish.’ Anthony Anderson will bring the perfect message filled with honesty and humor as our students begin the next phase of their life,” said Hakim Lucas, VUU president and CEO. “I am thrilled our graduates will have the opportunity to hear from him especially after a year of COVID-19 and calls for social justice reform.”

Anderson, who has Type 2 diabetes and starred in “The Departed” and the “Barbershop” franchise, also serves as an advocate and philanthropist who has worked to support the American Diabetes Association, Los Angeles Mission and Boys & Girls Club of America through an annual celebrity golf match.
