40 Acres and a Mule Internship Profile
40 Acres and a Mule was founded in 1986 by Spike Lee as a career vehicle for black writers, actors and directors seeking a chance to work with peers and develop skills in a supportive environment. Internships are offered at the mercy of production schedules, meaning there are no internships when there is nothing to do. 40 Acres produces all of Spike Lee’s movies, such as Do the Right Thing, Jungle Fever, Inside Man and X. In addition to its films, 40 Acres is active in the Brooklyn and African-American community, renovating basketball courts and organizing sports teams and camps. Project 40, 40 Acres’ nonprofit organization, sponsors programs that enable African-American and underprivileged youth to get professional basketball instruction, including a newsletter that provides information about college and news from the NCAA.
