Obama to speak at Atlanta college commencement in May

(CNN) - President Barack Obama will deliver the commencement address at Morehouse College in Atlanta this spring, the college's president said Saturday.

The historically black men's liberal arts college has just over 2,400 students enrolled and will graduate the class of 2013 on May 19.

College President John Silvanus Wilson Jr. made the announcement Saturday at the school’s main fundraiser. He joined Morehouse in January after heading the Obama administration's Historically Black Colleges and Universities initiative.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a member of the college's class of 1948.
