Rev. Al Sharpton

Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the commencement address to Florida A&M on May 4, urging students to rise above adversity. "If I come down off this stage and knock you down out of your chair, that’s on me. But if we come back next Saturday and you’re still lying on the floor, then that’s on you," Sharpton said. "Even if you’re not responsible for being down, you’re responsible for getting up." (Photo: Michael Buckner/Getty Images For BET)
