Bennett College Unveils a New State-of-the-Art Production Studio

Bennett College, the historically Black educational institution for women in Greensboro, North Carolina, recently opened its new state-of-the-art television and photography studio. The new studio includes a modular set that can be configured for news programs, talk shows, or stand-up presentations. It also has a professional lighting grid and space for photography and green-screen video production.

Keonte Coleman, dean of Bennett’s Division of Professional Studies, stated that “our students deserve to work in a professional environment. This multipurpose studio will help remove barriers for the young women we serve now and those we’ll serve in the future. Additionally, the studio will send a clear signal to our Belles that they can compete with their peers from across the country and that Bennett’s journalism and media studies department will ensure they are career-ready when they graduate.”

Tamara Jeffries, interim chair of the journalism and media studies department at the college, added: “There is so much potential here. Our students are always coming up with innovative program concepts, and this is going to give them a great space to get those concepts piloted and produced.”
