Hi Dean Brown!                                                                                                         

Dear Dean Tony Brown, I hope this email finds you well and in good spirits. I was a student at Hampton University from 2003-2007. I was a Broadcast Journalism major when you were the dean of the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications.  I was fortunate to have had a few brief encounters with you, but I honestly wished I had more opportunities to speak with you. I was most recently watching some Black empowerment and leadership programs on YouTube when I stumbled upon a Tony Brown's Journal program hosted by you.

It was so cool to see you in your profession as a journalist, given I've only experienced you as a dean. You were concise, transparent and kept the conversation moving along respectfully.

I was impressed and saddened that I wasn't thoroughly educated about who you are and the impact you made in the Black community as a journalist. I really enjoyed watching you facilitate the Black Leaders Discussion.

I am reaching out to say hello and to let you know how proud I am to have called you my dean. I appreciate you and all you've done to pave the way for Black journalists.        

Sincerely, Deydra L. Bringas, M. S.

THE NEW SCHOOL HOUSE  The Tony Brown’s Journal advertised annual price for our 650 streamed programs is currently $9.99. To encourage the participation of the students, administrators, and faculty to benefit at a reduced cost in this rare cutting-edge educationally purposeful opportunity. I am prepared to offer an exclusive opportunity to access the entire iconic and historic Tony Brown’s Journal Video & Film Collection to help advance the knowledge base of African-American history and culture at a dramatically reduced annual price, as low as $5.99 per participant (see chart).  This can advance the availability of an additional education tool in your arsenal of both history and technology for the participating students, faculty and administrators.

The entire digitally re-mastered Tony Brown’s Journal collection of 650 historical and public affairs video and film content that I produced on national television for over 40 years (1968-2008) is now described by archivists as “the most complete and thoughtful record of African-American opinion.”

This collection also includes a full-length anti-drug feature movie, “The White Girl,” and was released via commercial syndication in movie theaters in 1995 with a PG-13 rating.
