Anthony Anderson Graduates From Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts at Howard University

It took 30 years but his goal was met! black-ish star Anthony Anderson is a college graduate!

Just weeks after the eight-season run of the ABC show, black-ish ended, so has Anderson’s pursuit of a college degree. The Compton, California native celebrated his latest achievement via his Instagram account over the weekend when he graduated from the famed HBCU, Howard University.

He received his bachelor of fine arts degree from the newly named Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts.

“To quote Biggie, “IT WAS ALL A DREAM!” Words can’t begin to describe the emotional roller coaster I’m on right now. It’s literally been 30 years in the making. This spring I was finally able to complete the work to graduate from Howard University with a BFA degree from the Chadwick A Boseman College of Fine Arts! Yesterday was a full circle moment. It’s never too late! Things happen when they’re supposed to happen! I’d like to thank Dr. Wayne Fredrick, Dean Phylicia Rashad, Dean Denise Saunders Thomas and Courtney Bless Long for helping to make this happen for me! It takes a village. Thank you to my son @hotboynato for inspiring me to return to school to finish my degree after he was accepted into Howard University. This is just the beginning! HU!…

The actor, who just wrapped up the ABC show black-ish but has returned to his old stomping grounds on NBC with Law & Order, had spoken about obtaining his degree in 2018 when he appeared on the Jimmy Fallon Show. According to People, Anderson revealed on the late-night talk show that he never finished college because at the time, he “ran out of money after my junior year.” He expressed that he spoke to officials at Howard University about taking classes online, at home and “do some practical classes on campus” so he would be able to get his degree and “walk with my son in 2022.”

Due to circumstances, his son, Nathan also dropped out his junior year as well.

Earlier this year in February, while speaking on The Real, Anderson revealed he was just 15 credits away from graduating. Although his son didn’t graduate this year as planned, he mentioned that when Nathan got accepted to Howard, he “inspired me to go back and get my degree.”
