Related Experience

Marlon A. Walker's NABJ leadership began as vice president of print for the Triangle Association of Black Journalists in Raleigh, N.C.

When NABJ turns 44 in December, it needs to have a leader ready for the challenge of directing it into the next 44 years. I am that leader. In my time on the NABJ Board of Directors, I have advocated for our members in many ways and organized training institutes to prepare black journalists for what to expect as newsrooms continue to change. I see NABJ turning toward more training outside our annual convention and being seen more as the leading force for covering race, ethnicity and more in the world.
