Crump receives honorary degree

One of the highlights of the graduation ceremony last Friday at FAMU was the university’s presentation of an honorary doctorate degree to civil rights and personal injury attorney Benjamin Crump. FAMU president Larry Robinson presented the degree. Crump, who lives in Tallahassee, also received honorary degrees from St. Augustine and Lincoln universities last spring. Crump has been the lead attorney on several major cases, including representing the families of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Jacob Blake. In some of his earlier cases, Crump represented the families of Martin Lee Anderson and Trayvon Martin in two highly publicized Florida cases.
