CNN political pundit Bakari Sellers speaker at Founder’s Day FridayThree honorary doctorates to be awarded Livingstone College will celebrate Founder’s Day on Friday, Feb. 26, with a virtual program premiering at 10 a.m. on its official YouTube Channel. The annual program celebrates the life and legacy of one of its founders and first president, Dr. Joseph Charles Price, and is held in February, the month in which Price was born. The speaker for the occasion will be attorney Bakari Sellers, son of a civil rights activist, a history maker and a rising star in the Democratic Party. Sellers made history in 2006 when, at just 22 years old, he defeated a 26-year incumbent state representative to become the youngest member of the South Carolina State Legislature and the youngest African American elected official in the nation. In 2014, he won the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor in South Carolina, and has also worked for United States Congressman James Clyburn and former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin. Sellers was born into an activist family. He has followed in the footsteps of his father, civil rights leader Dr. Cleveland Sellers, in his tireless commitment to public service while championing progressive policies to address issues ranging from education and poverty to preventing domestic violence and childhood obesity. Sellers earned his undergraduate degree from Morehouse College, where he served as student body president, and his law degree from the University of South Carolina. He is the author of The New York Times best-selling book My Vanishing Country: A Memoir, which has been described as part memoir, part historical and cultural analysis – illustrating the lives of America’s forgotten black working-class men and women. He also hosts the Bakari Sellers Podcast, a twice-a-week show part of The Ringer Podcast Network that addresses politics, race, sports, media and more. Sellers currently practices law with the Strom Law Firm, LLC

Livingstone College’s Class of 1973 Raises Over $300,000 in Support of Alma Mater

In News by Garette Hunter

The Class of 1973 of Livingstone College has raised more than $300,000 to support the institution in honor of their 50th reunion. The remarkable gift was made during Stonecoming 2023 and is expected to have a significant impact for years to come. “We are thankful for the Class of 1973’s efforts to support the mission of Livingstone College,” said Chanel Quick, AVP of Institutional Advancement and Director of Alumni Affairs. “Their 5-year total was $305,802.31, and their gift for Stonecoming 2023 was $138,960.00. The Class of 1973 has set the bar in giving and supporting Livingstone for classes in reunion years going forward.” The Class of 1973’s gift included an antique framed plate of the Price Building, which was presented to President Dr. Anthony J. Davis. In addition, they also played an integral role in providing Toiletry Storage Center supplies for the students, who appreciate their collaborative effort to provide them with hygienic items. “We, the Class of 1973, are much appreciative of your support in our efforts to support Livingstone for classes in reunion years going forward,” said Jackie Astrop, a member of the Class of 1973. Senior Bishop Kenneth Monroe, the Convocation keynote speaker, was a Golden Graduate of Livingstone College. The Class of 1973’s remarkable gift will undoubtedly inspire future generations of alumni to give back and support their alma mater.
