    on Sunday, May 19, 2019, in Atlanta. Smith, a billionaire technology investor and philanthropist, said
    he will provide grants to wipe out the student debt of the entire graduating class at Morehouse College
    – an estimated $40 million. Smith, this year’s commencement speaker, made the announcement Sunday
    morning while addressing nearly 400 graduating seniors of the all-male historically black college in
    Atlanta. (Bo Emerson/Atlanta Journal-Constitution via AP)
