ATLANTA -- President Barack Obama gave the commencement address at Morehouse College in southwest Atlanta Sunday.

In his speech to the Class of 2013, the president encouraged the "Morehouse men" to "widen your circle of concern, to care about justice for everybody."

He also reminded them that being a real man means taking care of one's children, saying that on his deathbed, he won't be thinking about his accomplishments as president, but time spent with wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia.

About 500 students graduated from the historically black men's college Sunday. Valedictorian Betsegaw Tadele, a native of Ethiopia, received a computer science degree and has accepted a job with Microsoft in Seattle. Salutatorian Ernest Nelson, who is from Albany, will go on to attend the Medical College of Georgia.
