He graduated from Beverly Hills High School, where he participated in academics, athletics, and the Jack and Jill Organization. At Princeton Randall majored in psychology and took up fencing. He was a four-year member of the team in sabre. His thesis was titled “Psychosomatic Origins of Essential Hypertension.”
After graduation he returned home and aspired to compete in sabre at the Olympics. Tiger coach Stan Sieja suggested Randall study ballet to develop his footwork. That led to a lifetime of ballet, martial arts, and kung fu. Randall belonged to the Association of Black Princeton Alumni and participated in the Princeton Connect Initiative. He earned a doctorate in chiropractic medicine.
