ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A White House official says President Barack Obama will deliver the commencement address at all-male Morehouse College in Atlanta this spring.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is among the historically black institution’s alumni. Commencement is scheduled for May 19.

Obama typically speaks each spring at a handful of college and university commencement ceremonies, including at one of the military service academies.

Last year, he spoke at commencement ceremonies at all-female Barnard College in New York.

The White House official declined to speak for the record because the schedule of Obama’s commencement speeches has not been released.
