ANGELA BASSETT RECEIVES HONORARY DEGREE FROM YALE
What a time to be black, to be a woman and to be alive! It’s a refreshing time for the black movement, as we see black excellence radiate through from the royal wedding to Janet Jackson becoming the first black woman to receive the icon award from the Bill Board Music Awards and now, renowned actress, Angela Bassett, joins the train as she gets confered an honorary doctorate from the prestigious university.
This would be her third degree from the school as she had previously pursued a degree in American studies and another in Drama.
We love a winning woman and congratulate her on her success! This is also proof that no matter how delayed it seems as though your blessings are, stay the course and you will reap the fruits of your labour. At 59 years old, Bassett is proof of this winning formula.
She made the announcement on Instagram . Watch her acceptance video below.
