Brown has taught multimedia, and photojournalism at Howard since 2014. He has also taught design and reporting courses at Washington Adventist University. At Howard, Brown has been the school’s visual journalism architect. He coordinated a significant visual storytelling conference on campus. More than 300 professionals and students from across the nation attended the two-day conference.

Related Experience:
The Indiana native is a former Chicago Tribune picture editor and photojournalist. In the 1990s, he was the Tribune’s first Black visual editor, and as a photojournalist, he shared the Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting as a contributing staff member. In addition to his work at the Tribune, Brown taught at Northwestern University’s prestigious Medill School of Journalism. Previously, he was a photojournalist at the Boston Globe, a public affairs writer, and later a certified high school journalism teacher. Currently, Brown serves as the Editor of The Oracle Magazine, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity’s official membership publication.

As an educator, I don’t allow the reality of today to impede what can be accomplished through student collaboration, creativity, and hard work tomorrow. I focus on the way things should be versus the way they are or the way it has always been. I seek to improve the student journalistic environment rather than being surrounded by excuses. My mission is to prepare and train students to become excellent representatives of the Fourth Estate. It is also my hope that through this effort, they will use their full palette as reporters by adding the valuable perspective of visual storytelling.
