Brain Food Story

Final-Design--Adobe-Illustrator-CS4-BFkimbrough-onlyThe lecture series is an integral part of history of Dillard University. Our first official president, William Stuart Nelson launched what he called the aesthetic spirit of Dillard in the late 1930s designed to build a closer relationship between the students and the community, and elevating awareness of the university throughout the nation.

He was followed by Albert Dent who organized the Edwin R. Embree Memorial Lecture Series in the 1950s to help students achieve a high sense of personal and social values in their thinking and learning. Guests included Eleanor Roosevelt, Thurgood Marshall, Mary McLeod Bethune, Martin Luther King Jr., and Jackie Robinson. Broadus Butler followed Dent, and established the Scholars-Statesmen Lecture Series in the late 1960s to bring to students and the community distinguished people who modeled excellence to which students aspired and the community respected.
