Howard University’s glitziest tradition will continue again this fall, as the campus celebrates homecoming by enlisting talents of show-biz alums. Officials will announce Friday that Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson and veteran Tyler Perry ensemble star Lance Gross will serve as grand marshals for the Oct. 26 parade, and — making his first appearance at a Hilltop homecoming — Marlon Wayans will be the homecoming ambassador. He went to Howard, too? Well, for a while, anyway. Learn something new every year.
