Carnival/Mardi Gras, Lent and My Favorite HBCU Carnival Story

One of my favorite stories in all of HBCU lore is the story of Howard University President Wayne A.I. Frederick meeting his wife during Carnival in Trinidad, which he called “one of the greatest festivals on Earth” in a 2014 interview with C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb.
