State of the University During this year’s State of the University address, President Frederick greeted students, faculty, staff and alumni in the School of Business auditorium. He spoke about new University initiatives and Howard Forward 2024, the University’s five-year strategic plan. The address covered the five pillars (Enhance Academic Excellence, Inspire New Knowledge, Serve Our Community, Improve Efficiency and Effectiveness and Achieve Financial Sustainability) and highlighted how each pillar will continue to help advance Howard University, its students and the overall Howard community. Other topics included access and affordability, innovative approaches to academia and transformative campus projects. In addition to strategic plan updates, the president concluded his presentation by announcing the launch of Howard Entertainment, a new partnership with Amazon Studios that will give upperclassmen and graduate students an opportunity to train and study alongside entertainment executives in Los Angeles, California. The address was preceded by the annual Ideas Symposium, where Political Strategist and the Holder of the King Lecture Series, Donna Brazile moderated a panel titled “The Case of Reparations.”

Howard + Amazon Introduce Howard Entertainment As alumni celebrated their return to The Capstone and students welcomed family and friends to campus for Homecoming 2019, the University announced the launch of Howard Entertainment. In partnership with Amazon Studios, Howard Entertainment is designed to diversify the entertainment industry by creating a pipeline for African American students and other marginalized populations to train and study alongside entertainment executives. An immersive two-semester program to be held in Los Angeles, California, it will offer a unique interdisciplinary curriculum to be coupled with handson experiences and networking with Amazon’s industry partners. “The vision of Howard Entertainment is to offer a one-of-a-kind experience for students interested in all aspects of entertainment, from project greenlighting, to PR and marketing, to entertainment law and finance,” said President Wayne A. I. Frederick.

“This relationship aligns with Howard’s strategic goals of enhancing academic excellence and inspiring new knowledge. Collaborating with Amazon Studios will enable us to marry academia and industry efforts to build a robust workforce of diverse entertainment industry leaders. With Howard’s proven track record of developing some of Hollywood’s most notable actors, comedians and musicians, this next level collaboration will enable us to have even greater impact.” Students will take courses for credit during the spring semester and participate in a fellowship imbedded in the entertainment industry during the summer semester. Classes will be taught by Howard faculty who will be supported by Amazon Studios employees and other industry professionals invited by Amazon. “This program is all about intentionality–being intentional about increasing and preparing the next generation of African American, Latinx and Native American storytellers, casts, crew, and executives working on these projects,” said Latasha Gillespie, Amazon Studio’s Global Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. To be considered, students must be a Howard University upperclassman or graduate student, submit an application and complete an interview. The program is set to begin in January 2020.

New Grant Supports Public Interest Technology Initiatives

Why I Love Returning to Howard for

The University was recently awarded a grant from the Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) to support the Public Interest Tech Case Study Platform, an interactive website for teaching teams and students within the PITUN. The network aims to support the development of new public interest technology initiatives and institutions in academia, and foster collaboration among the network’s partner institutions.

Homecoming

Howard University developed a Public Interest Tech Case Study platform, which features detailed accounts of past student projects that have emerged out of university classes, includes narratives, teaching strategies, takeaways and resources that future teaching teams and students can use to improve the quality of their curriculum and impact of their projects.

Homecoming is always one of the greatest joys I have coming back every year. I think it gets bigger and

This project can serve as a key hub of the PIT-UN, from which current faculty, researchers, and students can draw ideas and curriculum resources. It can promote best practices, offer clear and detailed models for what a public interest tech project can entail. Also, the platform can help teaching teams and student teams to avoid pitfalls in their project work.

better every year. I've been away for 19 years and Howard is one of the great love stories of my life, which makes me get very sentimental during Homecoming, but I'm glad to be back." Torri Silver (B.S. ’00)

It is always good to be back on campus and reconnect with fellow Bison. We have always had this bond as a family and, to me, that's what Homecoming is all about." Denise Washington (J.D. ’81)

“Homecoming has been great this year. Catching up with old friends and simply reminiscing about all of the old experiences I've had here at Howard.” Marcus Johnson (B.S. ’01)

“It's always a pleasure to be back for Homecoming events and hang out with those you went to school with.” Hope Brown Johnson (B.A. ’81)

When I returned to the Mecca this year … I laughed and felt a sigh of relief as classmates I hadn't seen in years appeared once again. Despite my five-year absence, and though many changes have taken place, it still feels the same. This is my safe space, where I see black faces and black fame. We party and laugh … like we never left. Though much has changed so much remained the same. Neena Speer (B.A. ’14)

“Homecoming at Howard is one of the few things that has the ability to change from year to year and still give me the same feeling! Life comes at us from many directions, and through the highs and lows, Homecoming is a constant. It always feels like home. There’s so much love freely given and received by everyone; it’s refreshing and worth the trip!” Teeahnah Addison (B.A. ’14)

IN MEMORIAM

Remembering the Honorable

Elijah E. Cummings

Last week, we learned of the passing of The Honorable Elijah E. Cummings, a powerhouse voice for the unheard, servant leader. Born on Jan. 18, 1951 to sharecroppers, Congressman Cummings graduated with honors from Baltimore City College High School in 1969. He was a class of 1973 graduate of alma mater. When Howard University campus political activists are mentioned, his name must be included. He held a campus position every year since he was a freshman, including member of the George W. Carver and Meridian Hill Hall Judiciary Boards, sophomore class president, Howard University Student Association (HUSA) Treasurer and HUSA President. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in political science. Congressman Cummings then graduated from the University of Maryland School of Law in 1976 and was admitted to the Maryland Bar in December 1976. He practiced law for nineteen years before entering Congress. Without a doubt, he blazed his own trails by beginning his career of public service in the Maryland House of Delegates, where he served for more than a decade. While there, he became the youngest elected chairman of the Maryland Legislative Black Caucus, and the first African American in Maryland history to be named Speaker Pro-Tem, the second-highest position in the House of Delegates. Congressman Cummings proudly represented Maryland’s 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

PAGE 12 | Bison Beat Monthly Newsletter | OCTOBER 2019

A masterful coalition builder, from 2003-04, he was president of the Congressional Black Caucus. He accomplished a productive agenda with the help of other progressive caucuses to: preserve affirmative action; block the nomination of narrow-minded federal judges; stop the implementation of limited media ownership rules; improve health disparities, veterans’ benefits, and national security measures; increase funding for K-12 and for Historically Black Colleges and Universities; and, create new jobs and a climate for new businesses. Congressman Cummings, in his most recent role, served as the chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. As the committee’s chairman, Congressman Cummings fought to hold the presidential administration to a high standard of excellence and to ensure efficiency and effectiveness in the actions of the government of the United States. He also sought to identify appropriate reforms that prevent waste, fraud, and abuse and that ensure government programs meet the needs of the American people.

His clarion call wasn’t a solo piece. Instead, it was a lead baritone in the song of freedom—a song he amplified in the soothing of America’s deepest wounds. Today, the melody he first composed nearly three decades ago continues to rain down on and nourish us with immense love. Please join us in keeping his family, employees, constituents, daughters (both of whom are Howard alumni), and wife, Maya, in our thoughts in prayers. At this time, especially, they need the expansive arms of their Howard family, near and far, wrapped around them.

Of greatest significance, amidst it all, Congressman Cummings was present and there for his family, the less fortunate, the persecuted, the victimized, the city of Baltimore, America, and Howard University. We must perpetuate his legacy by taking up his clarion call and fighting for equality and justice.

IN MEMORIAM

We honor the life of James A. Donaldson, Ph.D., a wise counselor, prolific mathematician, and true Southern gentleman. James A. Donaldson was born in 1941 on a farm in Madison County, Florida, as one of 11 children to parents Audrey Brown and Oliver Donaldson. After graduating from high school, Donaldson enrolled at Lincoln University near Oxford, Pennsylvania, in 1957, and graduated from there in 1961 with his A.B. degree in mathematics. Donaldson continued his studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he received his M.S. degree in mathematics in 1963, and his Ph.D. degree in mathematics in 1965. Dean Donaldson joined the faculty at Howard for the first time in 1965, staying only one year before joining the faculty permanently in 1971 as a professor in the Department of Mathematics. He served as chairman of the department from 1972–90, played an integral role in the development of its Ph.D. program in mathematics— the first and only doctoral program at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU)—and oversaw the development of tenured faculty. He was a humble leader who made the welfare of students one of the primary concerns of his administration. He also made faculty development and alumni relations critical priorities throughout his tenure. Upon stepping down from his role as dean in 2013, students, faculty, staff and alumni participated in honoring him—evidence of his support and influence. He was a freedom fighter, in the tradition of many luminaries who also walked the walls of Alain Locke Hall, he navigated the tough terrains of the academe to secure the way for the next generation of trailblazers, academicians and leaders. We salute his service to the University as a professor, chairman, dean, scholar and friend.

We remember the life of Jessye Norman, renowned international opera star and Grammy-winning soprano. Norman was one of those once-in-a-generation singers who did not simply follow in the footsteps of others but staked out her niche in the history of singing. She entered Howard University on full-tuition scholarship at 16 years old and graduated cum laude in 1967 from the College of Fine Arts. She continued her studies at the Peabody Conservatory and the University of Michigan, earning an M.A. degree in 1968. On the occasion of the 1982 Commencement Convocation, Howard University conferred upon Ms. Norman the honorary Doctor of Music degree. A distinguished leader and caretaker of alma mater’s legacy, she served on the Howard University Board of Trustees from 2002–14. Her accolades include numerous Grammy Awards; the Eleanor Roosevelt Val-Kill Medal; the Kennedy Center Honors; and more than 40 honorary doctorate degrees from colleges, universities and conservatories around the world.

Former United Nations Secretary-General Xavier Perez de Cuellar made her an Honorary Ambassador to the United Nations in 1990. In 2000, Howard honored Ms. Norman with the Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award. In 2006, she received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and served as the guest vocalist at our Charter Day Dinner. In 2009, she was honored with the National Medal of the Arts—the highest award given to artists and arts patrons by the United States government. Ms. Norman’s legacy will live in the students who walk the halls of Howard University. I find solace in the fact that the answer to her wish to see more faces like hers in the opera world may be found on our campus.

The Reverend Cain Hope Felder, Ph.D., established scholar, author, biblical commentator, professor, editor and preacher, has submitted his final earthly assignment. He passed at the age of 76. Born in Aiken, South Carolina, Felder never planned to become a scholar in New Testament language and literature. As with many things in his life, he seemed predestined to his course. Since childhood, Felder consistently came in contact with clergy and ministers who helped guide his interests toward biblical studies. He graduated from Howard in 1966 with a degree in philosophy, Greek and Latin. Felder also held Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Philosophy degrees in biblical languages and literature from Columbia University in New York; a Master of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary in New York; and a Diploma of Theology from Mansfield College at the University of Oxford in England. Prior to his return to alma mater, he taught within the Department of Biblical Studies (1978–1981) at Princeton Theological Seminary. It wasn’t until he began teaching at Princeton that he realized the uniqueness he possessed as a knowledgeable African American within his profession. From 1969 to 1972, Felder worked as the first executive director of Black Methodists for Church Renewal, the Black caucus of the United Methodist Church, which was headquartered in Atlanta. Originally ordained as an elder in the United Methodist Church, he served as pastor of Grace United Methodist Church in New York City (1975–77) and was later ordained in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Until his death, Felder served as an elder in the Second Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, where he was appointed by Bishop Adam Jefferson Richardson as the resident biblical scholar for the district. The path ordered and ordained is one that’s trodden by the appointed and the anointed, laid specifically for those following behind. The Reverend Dr. Cain Hope Felder laid a path of enlightenment, through his scholarship and preaching, that has made the steps of those who follow him lighter and fuller.
