On Facebook, Vaughn would further explain what all went down when the student brought his child to the class.
‘Not only did he teach the entire lecture with the child in his arms but also stayed after class helping those with questions about today’s lecture with the child still in his arms as seen in the pictures,’ he said on the Facebook post.
He continued: ‘It was this encounter that truly showed me the power and impacts HBCU’s can have for the community, for this professor to understand that life happens and sometimes there are just no ways around it.
‘It acts like this one that I will see from time to time on campus that reminds me not only why I choose to come to Morehouse but also why this is such a great area for young men to be in and there’s no other place on earth like MOREHOUSE!’
