President's Message: Support NABJ as we build for the future


Dec. 28, 2018

Dear Friends of NABJ:

As 2018 comes to a close, consider a gift to the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) as part of your year-end giving.

NABJ has made progress in 2018 in multiple arenas and has furthered many elements of our industry recognized NABJ Strategic Plan 2017-2020. The organization continues to advocate for black journalists, and journalists of color. NABJ is also on the front lines working to ensure fair coverage of black and minority communities, to hold the powerful accountable, and to protect press freedom.

In 2019, NABJ will celebrate multiple association milestones and recognize various moments in Black History. Here's some:
  • 44th Anniversary Convention & Career Fair in Miami is a momentous time and we will recognize our 44 founders.
  • 30th Anniversary celebration of the NABJ Student Projects also takes place at #NABJ19. Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 class of students and mentors. The deadline is Jan. 31, 2019.
  • An updated "Committed to the Cause: A Salute to NABJ's Presidents" third edition book will tell NABJ's story via its 21 esteemed presidents.  
  • 400th Anniversary of slavery and its impact will be the focal point of the NABJ Region I Conference at Hampton University's Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications in Hampton Roads, Virginia. This riveting conference titled - Reclaiming Our Story - takes place April 12-14, 2019 and will explore the arrival of the first Africans on America's shores, and the role of black journalists as guardians of that history.
  • NABJ will award $100,000 in student scholarships and fellowships, and provide a carousel of Media Institute trainings throughout the year in the U.S. and abroad. Program information will be added continuously here.  
NABJ continues mightily on the path our founders blazed four decades ago. Your support of our great association makes this all possible. Donations to NABJ are accepted here.

As we celebrate the third day of Kwanzaa today, Ujima, the board and staff of NABJ appreciate your contribution to our collective work and responsibility.

Yours in Service,

Sarah Glover
NABJ President
