Misty, John and Lamond: More Black Homeschooling Celebrities

I previously wrote about 12 Black celebrities were homeschooled as well as 5 Black celebrity parents who homeschooled their children.  Since posting those lists, I have discovered a few more celebrity homeschoolers.  Check them out!

Misty Copeland 

In her memoir, Life in Motion, Copeland writes: 

"The summer before I turned fifteen, we decided that it would be better for me to be homeschooled to allow more time for dance.  There was an independent study program a few blocks from our condo.  I would go there every couple of weeks to meet with a teacher, get new assignments, and be graded on the previous bundle of homework." 

John Legend

Many know about this Pop/R&B stars talent, but did you know that he was homeschooled for part of his academic life? John Legend speaks about his homeschool experience in an interview: 

Lamond Murray

Former NBA star Lamond Murray has played for the  Los Angeles Clippers, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Toronto Raptors, and the New Jersey Nets.  In addition to his basketball career he is also a homeschool father and founder of Real Run Academy that offers PE classes to homeschoolers and other children.

Are we missing anyone? What do you think of these celebrities' decisions to homeschool? Please share.
