Evelyn Bethune stated that her and her entire family are insulted by BCU’s decision to have US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos speak at the 2017 commencement ceremony, and even protested along with the friends and family of BCU students to stop this from happening. Not to mention, her grandson was graduating as well!
