Angela Bassett just received an honorary doctorate degree from Old Dominion University!
LOVE to see it!
According to People, Bassett shared that she was "happy and humbled" to receive her Doctor of Humane Letters from the esteemed public institution. "Education is truly the KEY! #stillmakingmymommaproud," she wrote in her Twitter caption. Bassett received the honor the same weekend she served as a keynote speaker for ODU's 2022 commencement ceremony. Addressing the graduating class, Bassett powerfully urged students to honor the values of royalty set forth by ODU's mascot the Monarch, a lion with a crown on its head.
