A White House official says President Barack Obama will deliver the commencement address at all-male Morehouse College in Atlanta this spring.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is among the historically black institution's alumni. Com­mencement is scheduled for May 19.

Obama typically speaks each spring at a handful of college and university commencement ceremonies, including at one of the military service academies.

Last year, he spoke at commencement ceremonies at all-female Barnard College in New York.

The White House official declined to speak for the record because the schedule of Obama’s commencement speeches has not been released.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported on Obama’s address at Morehouse.
