At the 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival, we sponsored a FOX | HBCU Media Alliance brunch celebrating the upcoming release of Fox Searchlight’s Baggage Claim. Over 120 people attended the celebration including Baggage Claim writer/director David E. Talbert (Morgan State alum) and co-star Derek Luke.
David E. Talbert and Derek Luke addressed the crowd and gave their full support of the FOX | HBCU Media alliance and highlighted how important Historically Black Colleges and Universities are, and how impactful our Alliance can be to cultivate change. “It all started for me at Morgan State. It starts when a college doesn’t tell you what you can’t do.” said Talbert.
We had a great time as our guests enjoyed a “southern-style” breakfast, connected with peers, networked with Fox executives, and lined up to sign up for Fox | HBCU Media Alliance membership.
