This weekend many Tennessee students are celebrating a milestone.
On Saturday, civil rights icon Reverend Jesse Jackson delivered Tennessee State University's commencement address.
The TSU graduation ceremony took place outside the newly renovated Hale Stadium for the first time in nearly 40 years.
Jackson also spoke at a press conference Friday and shared how we can improve as a country.
"Our challenge is to renew our own commitment and lift America bottom up, not just top down. The American Dream is one big tent, everyone is in and no one is out," said Rev. Jesse Jackson.
