1. It was wonderful!

I had tears in my eyes for most of it. These kids are our future.

Plus Labron and Barack.

It's worth it to go find it. An hour long with zero commercials.

7. THANK YOU!

It is unfortunate that JP Morgan felt the need to dominate the HBCU program, but I guess it was their right. They helped make something very, very special, possible for the HBCU graduates. And there is always "fast forward".

9. Uh huh

They hammered it home MANY times.

Hiring 2500 HBCU grads was extremely impressive. But then it got excessive. It started to feel like one big commercial with snippets of fun. I didn't think that was fair to the grads.

10. It was, perhaps, too much. However, I most grateful that President Obama spoke. N/T

am glad that the President did this for our nation's graduates.

And I hope that the HBCU grads loved it.

5. Loved it!

Lots of energy, lots of graduates, excellent music, very good speech by President Obama. My sister reported my BIL was dancing to the Jonas Bros.

Loved all of it, except for Kevin Hart and one mumbling rapper.
