Morehouse President Walter Masey to Retire

Morehouse College President Walter Massey is set to speak to graduates for the final time this weekend. He's due to retire this summer after 12 years. The all-male, historically black college has such notable alumni as the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Spike Lee. Massey himself attended Morehouse, arriving when he was just 16. Massey tells Steve Inskeep that when he arrived at Morehouse as a student he wasn't certain that he would succeed.
