Alumni at a historically black college where President Obama will deliver the commencement address say the school has disinvited a speaker who criticized the president's record on Cabinet diversity and black unemployment.
Mr. Wilson said in a statement that he did not revoke the invitation to Mr. Johnson, but asked him to share the stage with two other baccalaureate speakers, and that Mr. Johnson declined.
"My decision has been wrongly construed by some as an effort to 'disinvite' this individual," Mr. Wilson said. "He was not disinvited, but rather declined to participate in the format."
