Samuel L. Jackson

Before he became the highest-grossing actor in history (according to the Guinness Book of World Records), Jackson was just another broke student at Morehouse College in Atlanta, where he graduated in 1972. Also, the actor became an activist during the turbulent civil rights movement and was suspended for two years after he held the Morehouse Board of Trustees hostage, demanding reform at the historic school.
