30 Years Later: How Morgan State University Created a Lifelong Bond Between These Five Friends in Film

Lifelong memories, experiences and friendships are just a few of the elements that make up the college experience. Having these moments at an HBCU just heightens these elements to a whole new level. For five Morgan State University alum, their bond of friendship began 30 years ago over their shared love of film and television production. Chris Bonner c/o 92 , Doreen Spicer, Andre Tyler, Lenny Rice c/o 93 and Steven May c/o 94 were all young ambitious minds, hungry for success when they connected on the Baltimore HBCU campus. They recall spending hours together creating and editing footage . One of their highlights as students included creating a video treatment for hit song “Pretty Brown Eyes” by music group Mint Condition (watch their video HERE)

Now, 30 years later, these friends have come together to reflect on their journey through the film industry since graduating from Morgan State. These five individuals have gone on to achieve great things in their respective careers, each taking a unique path towards success. In this interview, we delve into the lives of these friends and explore how their time at Morgan State has impacted their careers and lives.
