Fox teams with historically black colleges

Aim is to bring more students from the colleges to film, TV careers

Fox has announced a partnership with the historically black colleges and universities to develop diverse voices across the company’s entertainment businesses.

Collaboration, called the Fox/HBCU Media Alliance, will bring HBCU students, faculty and alumni together with Fox execs to build a stronger pipeline for students interested in film and TV careers. Company’s cross-divisional unit, Fox Audience Strategy, is spearheading the initiative.

FHMA will have chapters in Washington, D.C., and Gotham, led by influential HBCU alumni. Howard and Hampton universities are serving as inaugural partners, although membership in the alliance is open to all HBCUs.

“I know first-hand the extraordinary level of talent coming out of these schools,” said Fox Audience Strategy topper Nicole Bernard, who revealed the partnership Thursday and who received an undergrad degree at Howard U. “Fox has been a strong supporter of HBCUs, but now we want to elevate those efforts by creating a robust and unprecedented resource that harnesses the talent that HBCUs produce.”

Fox Audience Strategy, as part of the partnership, is also establishing the Fox Film Grant. One FHMA member will participate in Project Involve, a yearlong Film Independent project dedicated to fostering the careers of talented helmers from underrepresented communities.
