NABJ Founders' Day 
December 12


On Dec. 12, 1975, 44 men and women gathered in Washington, D.C. to form the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ). Over the last four decades, NABJ has grown into the largest organization representing journalists of color in the nation. We continue to be committed to fostering an exemplary group of professionals that honors excellence and the outstanding achievements of black journalists in the media industry.

We are living at a time when the free press is more important than ever. NABJ members contribute to the very best of news gathering happening in newsrooms across the nation. 

Today we issue a call to action. Please continue to support our dutiful association.  Here are some ways you can help NABJ remain relevant and viable: renew your membership or join NABJ; save the date for the 2017 NABJ Convention in New Orleans; donate to the association; or sponsor a student to attend the convention, a Media Institute or a Short Course (NC A&T, FAMU) .  
Your support helps NABJ expand access to professional and leadership training opportunities for students and journalists of color. With your support, we can continue our vital work to provide rich opportunities that equip the next generation of journalists with the skills they need to be change agents for all communities and our world.

We are honored to celebrate the sacrifices and commitment from our founders on this NABJ Founders Day. Thank you for your support.
