2022 Is The Magic Year

Anthony Anderson has big plans in the works. The Black-ish star tells Jimmy Fallon that he’s on the road to graduating from Howard University alongside his son, Nathan Anderson, in 2022.

“I was paying for college myself, and I ran out of money after my Junior year,” Anderson says of his decision to drop out of college during his younger years. Anthony Anderson’s story is definitely one that exhibits delay without denial as he has been working to find a way to finish his final year of undergraduate studies.


“I’ve been speaking with the university and Dr. Frederick, who’s the president of the university, about creating a curriculum that I can take online and at home and do some practical classes on campus so I can walk with my son in 2022,” the actor tells Jimmy Fallon. “So I have four years to finish one year of college.”

Education and family are big in the Anderson household. Perhaps, such is the reason why Anthony Anderson’s son felt like he found his wife after spending just two days at Howard University.

“I dropped him off one weekend,” Anthony explains. “I left on a Sunday. He called me on Tuesday and was like, ‘Dad!’ And I said, ‘What’s up, son?’ He was like, ‘I found my wife.’ I was like, ‘Son! It’s only been two days. School hasn’t even started yet. You’ve got another week before classes start.’ I said, ‘Son, you’ve got to walk down the hill.’ I was like, ‘Son, you may miss out on finding your wife because you think you already found your wife.'”
