RadioOnFire.com – Officials from a Morehouse—a historically black college, recently issued a statement noting they would begin to admit transgender men in 2020.
The college noted that students who make the transition to female during their time at Morehouse will not be eligible to graduate, but will be allowed to appeal to Morehouse’s president. Morehouse College President David Thomas said “I think Morehouse having the courage to speak to issues of masculinity in today’s environment is important. For 152 years, the world has, in some way, seen Morehouse as the West Point of black male development.”
Spelman College—a neighboring school to Morehouse, implemented a similar policy in 2017. As a result, Spelman had their first transgender student graduate in 2018.
