Morehouse College Receives a Unique Gift

Morehouse College, the historically black educational institution for black men in Atlanta, received a unique gift. The Ray Charles Foundation donated to the college the late singer’s tour bus. The bus contains 35 customized seats, four televisions, and a kitchen. The college will use the bus for trips by student groups.

Before his death in 2004 Charles gave $1 million to the college. As a result, the new performing arts center at the college will be named in Charles’ honor.
