BALTIMORE — Before stepping down from his post as the inaugural dean of Morgan State University’s School of Global Journalism and Communication, DeWayne Wickham, now dean emeritus, worked with University President David K. Wilson to establish the Center for New Media and Strategic Initiatives.

Under the leadership of Wickham, who serves as its director, the Center is producing contemporary and historical film documentaries and podcasts on life in the African diaspora, while aiding in the expansion of the ranks of Black journalists and news executives nationwide.

The Center’s first major film project, “The Calvin Tyler Story,” a compelling film on the life and accomplishments of Morgan alumnus and philanthropist Calvin E. Tyler Jr, debuted on Maryland Public Television (MPT) on Monday, Sept. 5, at 8 p.m.
