White supremacist David Duke has qualified for Louisiana’s U.S. Senate debate scheduled for November 2 at Dillard University, a Historically Black University based in New Orleans.
Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan, a white terrorist organization, has based his campaign on calling Black Lives Matter a terrorist organization. He also is campaigning to stop what he claims is racism against whites.
Duke qualified for participation in the debate by reaching a 5 percent threshold among five other declared candidates for the office.
The vote for U.S. Senator will be held on November 8th, the same day as the nation’s presidential election.
The American Missionary Association of the Congregational Church (now the United Church of Christ) and Freemen’s Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church (now the United Methodist Church) founded what later became Dillard in 1869 as Straight University and Union Normal School.
After several other name changes and associations, the school was named Dillard University in 1935.
