“When you look around, I don’t want you to see Black, White, Asian. I don’t want you to wonder if a person is Democrat or Republican, gay or straight. When you look around I just want you to simply see human beings. Nothing more, nothing less.”
This is the sentiment University of Michigan alum Charles Woodson left class of 2018 graduates with Saturday morning at spring commencement. Other speakers emphasized themes of service, community and Michigan fandom.
