A former senior vice president at ESPN, Keith Clinkscales serves as the CEO of the sports news organization Shadow League Digital. Aside from his extensive career in video and print media, Keith Clinkscales sits on several boards, including the advisory board for Howard University’s Cathy Hughes School of Communications.

Part of a historically black university in Washington, DC, the Cathy Hughes School of Communications offers a master of fine arts (MFA) in film, which is the only graduate degree program in film at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Part of the department of media, journalism and film, the MFA curriculum encompasses film history, theory, and criticism, as well as a study of how films impact society.
In addition to a thorough examination of film practice, the Howard University MFA in film emphasizes global film studies and independent filmmaking topics not usually highlighted in mainstream film degrees. A diverse mix of students are attracted to the program, hailing from countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Graduates of Howard’s MFA film program are currently working as award-winning producers, directors, cinematographers, and screenwriters throughout the world.
