Morehouse Cincinnati Dayton Alumni Association re-launched in July 2020. After years of dormancy, a small group of Morehouse College graduates in the area including Bryan Nelson, Carlton Collins, Julian Gaines, Jermaine Newman, Curtis Midkiff, and Tor Carter worked with John Watson Jr. VP Region V of the MCNAA to request permission to restart. This group was supported by area alumni, including Paul Booth, Melvin Pickard, Dr. Daarel Burnett, Dr. Thomas Shockley and Dr. Terrence Poole, who is a past president for the chapter.

In 1948 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. graduated from Morehouse College, receiving a bachelor of arts in sociology. As one of our most prestigious alum, we take this weekend as an opportunity to honor his legacy of service and education by focusing on the next generation of leaders, educators, doctors, activists, and builders of communities. This fundraiser will support our efforts to help fund college needs as they matriculate through Morehouse College.
