Anthony Anderson's Son Inspires Him To Finish His Studies At Howard While His Daughter Sets Her Own Path

Anthony Anderson is an HBCU graduate.

According to The Wrap, the “Law & Order” star — who plays Det. Kevin Bernard on NBC’s long-running police procedural — graduated from Howard University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the newly-minted Chadwick Boseman College of Fine Arts. The outlet confirms that Anderson didn’t receive an honorary degree — rather, the outlet confirms that the actor and comedian went back to classes alongside his son, Nathan, to get the degree through an honest day’s work.

Previously, Anthony Anderson revealed that he’d dropped out of the prestigious HBCU for financial reasons — and that it was his son who inspired his return to college.

“Thank you to my son @hotboynato for inspiring me to return to school to finish my degree after he was accepted into Howard University. This is just the beginning!” he wrote, in part, on his Instagram page, which you can see below.

This is just the latest accomplishment made by the longtime actor, whose success on such shows as “Black-ish” (opposite the likes of Tracee Ellis Ross — where he earned an estimated $400,000 per episode before it went off the air) has earned him a $25 million net worth, per Celebrity Net Worth. And, as he said, this is just the beginning.

Let’s take a look at how his two children are forging their own paths to success.

Editorial note: The net worth listed in this piece is a speculative estimate drawn from a variety of online sources.

According to her Instagram page, Kyra Anderson is a post-partum doula in Houston, TX. Her account reads that she’s a Mama Glow-certified doula, which means that she is part of “a global maternity education org offering #doula service to #fertility expectant & new #mamas.” Kyra also said that she’s been “on the journey” for a year.
