Morehouse President John S. Wilson is stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to commencement speakers.

Reverend Kevin R. Johnson, scheduled to speak at ceremonies scheduled before the actual graduation is not only a Morehouse alum, but also a critic of President Obama. Johnson published an artice titled “A President for Everyone, Except Black People” last month that criticizes the president for his lack of diversity among his administration.

Initial reports claimed that Wilson disinvited the reverend after the article was published; however, he has adamantly denied the rumor and instead has reiterated that he has instead opted to have the reverend participate as part of a three-person panel instead of speaking alone.
