Things to Do

As the National Association of Black Journalists returns to Philadelphia, with its history of empowerment and action, you will leave this convention with relevant skills to push you to execute your professional goals. Our lineup of workshops is innovative, educational and entrepreneurial in nature that ties into our theme, "The Power of Now: Claiming Your Destiny."


Journalists and media professionals attending our convention will acquire skills to collaborate within the digital environment - such as creating a blog, developing a mobile app and producing a data visualization project.

You will leave with the confidence to transform your aptitude into action!

Please check this page periodically for updates.
