Popular actress and Howard alumna Wendy Raquel Robinson (“The Game”) will serve as an acting boot camp instructor. Rounding out the participants are screenwriter and alumnus Dallas Jackson, talent manager Jelani Johnson, film director Sheldon Candis (“LUV”), and NBC Universal Vice-President of Diversity and Inclusion Sal Mendoza. Vera Katz, professor emerita from the Howard University Department of Fine Arts, will instruct acting boot camp as well.
“We are extremely excited to expand Howardwood in our third year to educational boot camps, internship interviews and a round table discussion,” said Asha May. “Our goal is to provide students, who’ve walked the same yard as we did, tangible opportunities in the entertainment industry.”
Adia May added, “Historically, Howard University alumni have broken barriers in the entertainment arena. However, the connection between these trailblazers and the next generation has been non-existent. Howardwood is bridging this gap with the support of Howard University and sponsors like NBC Universal.”
Students can sign up for the Boot Camps and Roundtable Sessions here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3763320192
Undergraduate and Graduate students pre-selected by Howard’s Communications, Business and Law Schools can take advantage of the NBC Universal internship interviews.
