The Film Department getting more diverse

Film major Reginald Campbell and other film students noticed the large photos on the Film Department’s lounge area wall in the second floor of the WEB building, had photos of only white directors. There are four or five posted. Almost every film student passes it as it is central to most classes. He asked Film Chairman Daniel Gurskis about the process of adding other directors. He was all for it and was referred to the Film Society and their president Calvin Peterson. It was agreed upon that two directors photos would be added and possibly more in the future. The directors are Melvin Van Peebles and Oscar Micheaux.
