I am very proud of our young scholars and pray that one day we can provide them with these types of opportunities without having to receive awards named after the murderous devil called Cecil Rhodes.   Hopefully these brilliant young warriors will take the money, opportunities and prestige to flip this and one day start their own system of honoring other scholars of Afrikan descent.  So, as we absolutely salute our youth for their academic achievements, let us not forget.
