A young Black man has been celebrated after he graduated with a degree in engineering from Tennessee State University in the United States of America.
Social media is buzzing with commentaries highlighting the young man's achievement. Some are touting his milestone as an example of Black brilliance amid the current state of the world.
In some photos that have been splashed on social media, the young man is seen in his dashing graduation regalia and cap.
He was pictured as he proudly posed alongside his son in the inspirational photos. He noted that he has passed his knowledge to his son so that he ''can know right from wrong''.
"Pass my knowledge to my son so he can know right from wrong. That’s all that really matters to me. Can’t wait till you grow up and look back on moments like this #likefatherlikeson"
The young Black man’s account, which was recently shared on social media, has garnered powerful reactions about Black excellence.
YEN.com.gh recently reported that there’s no greater force that can stop a man determined to succeed and Harold Franklin, an indigene of Talladega in Alabama in the United States, just affirmed this narrative as he earned his master’s degree.
Harold Franklin, who is 86 years old, finally received his master’s degree from Auburn University after years of hard work.
In another story, Ghanaian entrepreneur and creative genius, Hannah Akomeah, is a senior high school graduate who transforms used car tyres into furniture. The hardworking young lady turns tyres into beautiful home furniture such as tables and round sofas that are very comfortable.
Furniture making has been a male-dominated field for a long time, but Hannah is one of many young women shaping and changing the narrative.
