The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is concerned about The Atlantic's Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Goldberg's comments that suggest only white males can write a 10,000-word cover story. The top editor of a major publication should not express such a sexist and racially insensitive view.  

NABJ encourages The Atlantic to take a closer look at the myriad of opportunities available to hire black journalists - both women and men - who can produce impactful cover stories. We also submit that The Atlantic should invest in funding and developing programs that offer more opportunities to women and journalists of color in this arena.

NABJ members and other black journalists worldwide are not only skilled in long-form writing but have garnered awards for this work. Additionally, there are many colleges and schools of journalism across the nation, including at our historically black colleges and universities, that train women and journalists of color, in general, to be strong in-depth news and feature writers.
