Former Atlanta Mayor Ambassaor Andrew Young celebrates 80

Living a life of many hats, many jokes, and many roles; civil rights crusader, and political leader Andrew Young born March 12, 1932, celebrated 80 years Tuesday with family and friends.

Receiving an early birthday gift a week before in Atlanta, also known as “the city which he built;” Young’s birthday and achievements were recognized during a surprise reception at Atlanta City Hall, chaired by Councilman Michael Julian Bond.

“I’ll be damned, they put one over on me,” Young said, joined by his daughter Andrea and co-conspirator wife Carolyn Young.

Mrs. Young revealed that her plot to surprise "Andy" was inspired after speaking with Bond during a Trumpet Awards Civil Rights Walk of Fame induction January; and from her to desire to do something for a man always doing for someone else.

ATLANTA -- Morehouse College President Robert M. Franklin will step down at the end of the school year on June 30 after five years in the position, Morehouse announced Monday.

Morehouse said it has launched a search to identify a new president. If a replacement has not been selected by July 1, Franklin will continue in the position until a new president is found, but no later than Dec. 31.

Following his departure, Franklin plans to spend his sabbatical as a scholar-in-residence at Stanford University's Martin Luther King Jr. Institute and then return to Morehouse in the role of distinguished professor, the college said.

"I look forward to a sabbatical during which I intend to travel, write, speak and interview leaders about the condition of boys and men in the U.S. and around the globe, research that I began years ago in my book, Crisis in the Village," Franklin said in a statement.
