I'll Find A Way Or Make One: A Tribute To Historically Black Colleges And Universities by Juan Williams & Dwayne Ashley (c2004)
Dillard University was founded in New Orleans, LA on Nov 22, 1898. Some notable graduates of this school are jazz musician Dr. Ellis Marsalis Jr, former Harlem Globetrotter Billy Ray Hobley, and Dr. Ruth Simmons, president of Brown University. For more information on this university, and other historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), check out I'll Find a Way or Make One. This tribute to HBCUs tells the story of the founding of such institutions by those once denied both education and freedom.
