    WMK 2-20122Dillard University President Dr. Walter Kimbrough discusses hurricane preparedness with Inside Higher Education

Only Dillard University required students to evacuate.

    “I think we made the right call in sending students away so they wouldn’t have to be there in the heat not having power, because I think people in the city now are frustrated with that,” Kimbrough said. “But we need to have a much broader plan to think, ‘What do we do in a situation that is not a category three or four?’

    fashionista Image1-300x367The Ebony Fashion Fair (EFF) emerged with the help of Mrs. Jessie Covington Dent, wife of former Dillard University President Emeritus, Alfred W. Dent. The EFF was an annual traveling fashion show which gave African-Americans an opportunity to see what they’d only read about: dazzling, glamorous, dramatic couture pieces. The shows, held over 50 plus years, raised more than $55 million dollars that went towards helping charities and college students across the country. An EFF exhibit is coming to the Chicago History Museum, opening March 16, 2013 and running through January 4, 2014.
