Honorary Quotations

Believe it or not, I was just given an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Tennessee.

Joyce Carol Oates

There's no question that O.J. Simpson had been a substitute white man in America. He had gained honorary white status. He was not viewed by many white Americans as black. He was not seen as the African American athlete who was rebellious: Jim Brown, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron... He was accepted in golf clubs that were very tony.
Michael Eric Dyson

I have actually five honorary degrees.
Katherine Dunham
