Actress Regina Hall is slated to deliver the commencement address at Dillard University on Saturday, May 11.
Hall, an award winning actress known for her roles in The Best Man, Think Like a Man and Girls Trip, has a body of work that spans two decades.
“I am always looking to elevate new voices for commencement, someone we have not heard from but who has a story,” Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough, president of Dillard posted to social media “@morereginahall is that person! A stellar 20 year career that has created some of the classics especially for Black Gen Xers like me. Right now, she may in fact be the hottest Black actress in America.”
