#OTD-ish 26 December 1968 Howard University professors Lois Pierre-Noel (also known as Lois Mailou Jones) and Peter Yu, and Fine Arts students—Robert Allen, George Luther, Bill Harris, Joyce Lancaster, Leslie Scott and Cecilia Washington—discuss advertising art on Channel 4.

According to the Hilltop:

“In an informal setting displaying posters, layouts, package designs and other student work, “Professors Lois J. Pierre-Noel and Peter Yu discussed the daily use of art in our society. Leslie Scott, a graduate student in Design, summarized from his thesis, the history of commercial art.”

Your comments are welcome below. Do you, a family member or neighbor remember seeing this program on Channel 4? Were you a Fine Arts student? Do you remember Professors Pierre-Noel and Yu? Do you remember any of the students? Do you have any of the art that was on display? Other art from 1968? Do you have a copy of the tv segment? Do you know the photographer? You may comment privately here.
