Issa Rae graduated Stanford in 2007 with a degree in African and African-American studies, Angela Bassett also got a degree in African-American studies from Yale. Lupita N’yongo studied at Yale School of Drama and received her MFA in 2012. John Legend went to the University of Pennsylvania in 1999 and studied English with a focus on African-American literature. Quincy Jones daughter, Rashida Jones studied philosophy and religion at Harvard.
