Actress Regina Hall to address Dillard graduates next month

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Veteran actress Regina Hall has been tapped to address graduates of Dillard University next month.

Hall will be the 2019 speaker for commencement ceremonies scheduled at 8 a.m. May 11 on the campus’ historic Avenue of The Oaks.

Hall holds an English degree from Fordham University and a master’s degree in journalism from New York University’s Arthur L. Cater Journalism Institute. But after her father died, she decided to pursue goals that “aligned with her spirit” and began landing acting roles for commercials and on primetime television.

Her work includes “The Best Man,” ”Girls Trip” and the current comedy out now, “Little,” which also stars Issa Issa Rae (“Insecure”) and Marsai Martin (“Black-ish”).

Dillard President Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough says Hall “definitely has a message for our graduates.”
