Xavier University of Louisiana is a private, historically black, Catholic university in New Orleans, Louisiana.
It is the only Catholic HBCU and, following the canonization of Katharine Drexel in 2000, became the first Catholic university founded by a saint. Senator Barack Obama delivered the keynote address in August 2006. The Archbishop of New Orleans, Alfred C.
Hughes, declined to attend, arguing that Obama was not against abortion and had not been consulted prior to the event. Obama returned after becoming president, visiting New Orleans in August 2010 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
