Denzel Washington talks about having helped Chadwick Boseman (MIO ’98) attend BADA

Denzel Washington chats with Stephen Colbert about having provided a scholarship for Chadwick Boseman (MIO ’98) to attend our Midsummer in Oxford Program. Chadwick was part of a group of ten students from Howard University who attended MIO with the support of Phylicia Rashad, Denzel Washington, and other donors. That summer solidified our relationship with Howard University that was originally established by the legendary Howard Theater Professor Henrietta Edmonds.

This relationship continues to this day as twelve students from Howard are currently attending the Midsummer in Oxford program!
