Livingstone Graduate Leads in Democracy


W. Mondale Robinson is a Livingstone College alumnus who has truly flung his light of wisdom since graduating in 2012. A political science major, Robinson serves as the youngest mayor of his hometown city, Enfield, North Carolina. Prior to his position as mayor, Robinson worked diligently and proficiently in social justice and civic engagement, whereas he is the founder of Black Male Voter Project, an initiative exclusively designed to erase the voting gap between Black men and the overall voting population. As a result, the only focus of BMVP is increasing voter turnout for Black men by building a movement encouraging black men to regularly and actively engage in the voting and electoral process.

Robinson’s endeavors for the greater good continue to be acknowledged as he was a 2023 inductee in the Livingstone College’s UNCF Hall of Fame and a 2024 inductee in the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC) National Quiz Bowl Hall of Fame as a former player for Livingstone College. Most of all, Robinson recently compiled a documentary entitled Enfield, What is Inherited, which is expected to debut on Juneteenth at the Los Angeles Film Festival in California. Robinson said, “I am so blessed to be living in this moment. I feel the seeds are reaping from all the people who have invested in me through the years, and I am truly grateful for my family, my hometown, my church, Livingstone, my alma mater, and so much more. It’s simply unbelievable. We must keep fighting for justice. All praises be to God.”

Juneteenth 2024 is a special day for Robinson, a protégé of the late Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman. In addition to his documentary showcase, ABC’s Nightline will also cover Robinson’s Black Male Voter Project initiative. To learn more visit blackmalevoterproject.org.
