Chadwick Boseman-inspired masterclass to debut at Howard University

Chadwick Boseman’s alma mater, Howard University, honored him last week by naming its newly reestablished College of Fine Arts after him, and that’s not all the institution is doing in remembrance of the late actor.

The university’s president, Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick, recently said it will be introducing a masterclass template that gained the support of Boseman himself, before he died last year.

The curriculum is aimed at helping students enrolled in the fine arts college to become familiar with their specific fields of study by working with industry pros who can share real-life experiences, Frederick told TMZ.

Howard will also weave their guest lectures into day-to-day learning and coursework on campus, “Good Morning America” confirmed.
