Roland Martin to deliver Chicago State University commencement address

| No Comments

Chicago-based television commentator and columnist Roland S. Martin will give the commencement address at Chicago State University's graduation ceremony on Dec. 17, in the Emil & Patricia A. Jones Convocation Center. Martin was selected to give the address because of his unwavering belief in the importance of higher education. Commencement Committee student representative Tamikka Jackson said that during difficult economic times, "students need to be uplifted," and she said Martin is capable of doing just that. In addition to regular appearances on CCN, Martin is a commentator for the TV One cable network and a nationally-syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate.
