He was born and raised in Louisiana during the height of Jim Crow law.  As an undergraduate at Southern University, he served as president of the student body, was actively engaged in the Civil Rights Movement, and met luminaries including Stokely Carmichael, H. Rap Brown, (Jamal Abdullah Al-Amin) both Howard alum, and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  For these reasons and more, becoming a two-time Howard graduate, and long-time faculty member were not only decisions he had to make, they were decisions he wanted to make in order to secure his future.  On this episode of “The Journey,” Dr. Wayne Frederick chats with a two-time Howard alum, and former professor of law, associate dean of The Howard University School of Law, and Montgomery County Executive, The Honorable Isiah “Ike” Leggett.
