RJI forms NABJ Media Network

From Reynolds Journalism Institute

For far too long, stories about the Black community have been sparse, often relegated to the back pages of newspapers or buried at the end of a TV newscast. For years, we have encouraged newsrooms to diversify their staff, their stories and their coverage. Unfortunately with minimal meaningful change in the industry, until the recent racial reckoning in America moved the needle a little more.

This has inspired us to create a new platform, NABJ Media Network, where we will work to tell and share often untold stories about Black communities through the work of  Black journalists. With the help of the Reynolds Journalism Institute, there will soon be a place where you can find stories that speak truth into history, profile the Black experience from multiple perspectives, and shed a light on social injustices in Black communities that are often underreported, even ignored. News stories written, shot, edited, and produced by National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) members and colleagues.

NABJ is now reaching out to news partners, journalists and organizations to get their support and to share their content on the NABJ Media Network. Interested in being a part of this project? Sign up to contribute or learn more!
