The Rise of Rochon

Dr. Ronald S. Rochon was a freshman at Tuskegee University located in Tuskegee, Alabama, when he experienced something that would change the course of his studies and career. He attended the commencement ceremony that May and was struck by the doctoral students, wearing long, beautiful robes with three velvet stripes on the side, who were being bestowed with academic hoods around their necks by the university president and professors.
