The Washington, D.C. Hall of Fame Society, Inc., has announced that National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) co-founder Joe Davidson will be inducted into its Hall of Fame on Sunday, April 28, at the Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel.


Davidson will be inducted in the communications category for his resounding impact and life-long work in the field of journalism. Davidson, who was among the 44 men and women who established NABJ in 1975, currently lends his expertise to The Washington Post and writes the Federal Insider column, formerly known as the Federal Diary. Previously, he worked as a Washington and foreign correspondent at The Wall Street Journal.  

According to an announcement by the organization, the award is bestowed upon distinguished individuals who have established neighborhood programs, led innovative programs, or helped to enhance the quality of life for D.C. residents.     

“NABJ is pleased that the D.C. Hall of Fame Society is honoring the work of one of our beloved founders, Mr. Joe Davidson,” said President Sarah Glover. “Founder Davidson is not only a great contributor in the D.C. community, but he is also a beacon of light and hope within NABJ and across the journalism community.”
