A Morehouse College student was shot on campus Friday evening after an argument over a pick-up basketball game, a school spokeswoman said.

The student, who was not immediately identified, was wounded in the forearm at a gym at Samuel A. Archer Hall, spokeswoman Elise Durham said in a statement.

Four shots were fired, Durham said. The student was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition. No other injuries were reported. The spokeswoman also did not provide the age or classification of the student.

“Police believe there are two suspects, and they are believed to be students of the Atlanta University Center, but have not yet been identified,” Durham said.

In addition to Morehouse College, the AUC consists of Morehouse School of Medicine, Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College.

Morehouse campus police, Clark Atlanta police and Atlanta police were involved in the investigation, the spokeswoman said.

Shuffle Along was a 1921 Broadway play by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake. The show debuted at Daly’s 63rd Street theater in New York City. Shuffle Along was one of the longest running plays on Broadway, with 504 performances. The show served as a breakout role for St. Louis native Josephine Baker, who danced in the chorus as the zany caboose at the end of the line. Baker joined the traveling cast at age 15 and was allowed to join the Broadway version a year later, when she was 16. Shuffle Along also included talents Paul Robeson and Adelaide Hall.

*Jennifer Hudson will join 26 students from Sandy Hook Elementary School in singing “America the Beautiful” during the Super Bowl XLVII pregame show on Sunday, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Thursday.

It will be the second poignant Super Bowl pregame performance from Hudson, who performed the National Anthem before Super Bowl XLIII in what was her first public appearance after her estranged brother-in-law murdered her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

The NFL invited the students to sing a little more than a month after 26 children and faculty members were killed in the tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Conn, reports USA Today.

Though Rosa Parks was not the first to confront the injustice of segregation laws, her courageous act of civil disobedience sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott — 381 days of peaceful protest when ordinary men, women, and children sent the extraordinary message that second-class citizenship was unacceptable. Rather than ride in the back of buses, families and friends walked. Neighborhoods and churches formed carpools. Their actions stirred the conscience of Americans of every background, and their resilience in the face of fierce violence and…

Starting off his monologue with “I think we all need a pep talk…,” the self-appointed “Tiny President of the United States” encourages viewers to “stop being boring” and be their best self in his third message to the world.

Alternatively humorous, optimistic, and ambitious, the “Kid President” manages to warm the coldest of hearts, when he gets straight to business in encouraging the masses to find their purpose:

“The world needs you to stop being boring, yeah, you, boring is easy, everybody can be boring. Your gooder than that.

“Life is not a game…and if life is a game, aren’t we are all on the same team, I mean, really, right? I’m on your team, you’re on my team.”

And if you are still not convinced about why you need to seize the best out of what life offers, Kid…
