This fall marks the third season of promoting Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) on Maryland Public Television (MPT) by way of “HBCU Week.” HBCU Week offers films about the under-told stories of sacrifice, courage, innovation, and hope found in the archives of these important American institutions. To kick-off the HBCU Week program content is the “The Calvin Tyler Story” (1 hr.).

The Calvin Tyler Story tells the remarkable account of Baltimore native and former Morgan State University student Calvin Tyler, who rose from being a UPS delivery truck driver to become one of the company’s highest-ranking executives and largest shareholders and whose $20 million gift to Morgan was the largest gift ever made to an HBCU by a former student. The documentary debuts on Maryland Public Television as part of its HBCU Week celebration. It was created as the first film offering from School of Global Journalism and Communication’s Center for New Media and Strategic Initiatives.
