Musician and producer Hamilton Bohannon, a Newnan native, received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters Honoris Causa from Clark Atlanta University earlier this month, during the university’s graduation ceremony. The keynote speaker was retired astronaut Mae Jemison, the first woman of color in space. Bohannon is a 1964 graduate of Clark College and celebrated 50 years in the music industry last year.
