Howard University President Wayne A.I. Frederick

Wayne Frederick came to Howard University from his home in Trinidad at age 16, earned three degrees there and joined the faculty in 2006. Last week, the well-respected oncologist and administrator became Howard's 17th president. Frederick takes the helm at a time of economic challenges at D.C.'s historically black school. Concerns about the medical school prompted two recent credit rating downgrades and charges of fiscal mismanagement roiled the board of trustees last year. Frederick joins Kojo to talk about his plans for a way forward.
