All Hail The Queen! Phylicia Rashad

All hail the Queen! Phylicia Rashad also known by her T.V. mom name Claire Huxtable, has been named Howard University Dean of Fine Arts. Talk about things coming full circle. Ms. Rashad is not only a multi-award winning TV, movie an stage actress, she also graduated magna cum laude from Howard in 1970. "I would like to see the work that was established during my time blossom again." She stated in a telephone interview with Washington Post. Alumni of the Fine Arts program also include actors Taraji P. Henson and the late Chadwick Boseman, as well as singers Roberta Flack, Donny Hathaway and Richard Smallwood. Its a beautiful thing to watch someone as respected as Phylicia Rashad be given the opportunity to properly give back to a craft she clearly has had a strong influence in as well as been influenced by.
