Rev. Dr. Walter L. Kimbrough, Sr. to Keynote 2018 Morris Brown College Founders' Day

The speaker for the Morris Brown College 137th Founders’ Day Convocation scheduled noon, Friday, March 23, 2018 at Flipper Temple AME Church will have to find ways to encourage attendees to “Imagine, Aspire, Believe”. The phrase used by the College as its mantra aptly describes the keynote, Rev. Dr. Walter L. Kimbrough, Sr. whose life has been defined by rising from humble beginnings to build one of Atlanta’s most successful ministries serving the underserved. By his own accord, he readily admits he was born “po and proud” as a Grady baby raised in an Atlanta low-income community. [View More]

“Imagine…Aspire…Believe” - Dear Alumni and Friends:

There is an African Proverb that says, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”

At Morris Brown College, we are clear about where we are going and the road we must take. Because our focus at the College is to regain your confidence,we have chosen the path that will lead us to accomplishing our goal of accreditation in addition to fulfilling our mission of commitment to excellence in education—and we have faith that this will happen.

To accomplish this goal will require careful and accurate planning, extraordinary hard work, the acquisition of substantially more financial resources, and the cooperation and support of internal and external communities. In this regard, Morris Brown College is launching a three-year initiative, with the goal of raising $20 million. You, our supporters, can be instrumental in helping us accomplish this goal. With your gifts toward our annual fund and capital campaign, as well as your legacy giving, we will have the finances needed to regain accreditation, to remain competitive, and to reach new and stimulating levels of excellence.
