Anthony Anderson is an HBCU graduate. According to The Wrap, the “Law & Order” star — who plays Det.

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.
