MC Lyte experienced nice weather and her first graduation as a board of trustees member at Dillard University earlier this month. 

She’ll be working with Dillard University’s Walter M. Kimbrough. Her foundation Hip-Hop Sisters will help promote the fresh #EducateOurMen initiative.

“More than just a necessity, given the percentages of men to women at Dillard, immediately we just thought how can we raise the awareness of the education to be had at an HBCU [which] is like none other,” Lyte told Black Enterprise.

“For me, there is no other school to do it with but, Dillard,” she added. “Education gives one opportunity, gives an outlook and allows someone to dream of something better– of making their circumstances better, of providing for their families and providing for their children.”
