* Peggy Pinn, 65, an educator at Howard University and the founder of a television and film training program for minority students, died April 6 of a stroke at Shady Grove Hospital in Rockville, where she lived. The native of Brooklyn, N.Y., wrote columns for The Amsterdam News and The Queens Voice in New York, worked in the news and public-affairs department at CBS-TV and on the production staff of the PBS series "Black Journal." In 1971, she founded the National Educational Television Training School in New York, a program sponsored by WNET that was designed to prepare minority students for jobs in communications. From 1972 until her retirement in 1984, she lectured in the department of film and television at Howard, and served as the director of the university's department of continuing education and of its community-service programs.
