Silver Is One of Ten Plaintiffs Suing the Board of Trustees at Howard U.

On December 13, 2021, ten proud Howard University graduates (including April R. Silver) became plaintiffs in a legal complaint against the Board of Trustees at Howard University. The plaintiffs, under the brilliant counsel of Donald Temple, Esq., charge that the Board violated its by-laws when it dismantled seats that were reserved for students, alumni, and faculty. With this legal action, the plaintiffs have taken a stance for shared governance, an approach to honorable leadership that has been a part of Howard's history for generations. Scroll down to read the complaint below. The addresses of the plaintiffs have been removed for privacy purposes.
