This is a story that many don't know. The grandfather arrived from Iran and drove cabs in DC while pursuing a PhD which he got in 1995.

The school has a long history with immigrants or their children coming to Howard especially in the professional schools and giving back.

Eddie Brown is the model of Black business man that should be emulated more. He is a trailblazer.
