2019 NABJ Region I Conference

‘Reclaiming Our Story’

Guardians of Our History Since 1619 and the True Responsibility of Black Journalists Today

Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications
Hampton University
April 12-14, Hampton Roads, Virginia

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) will host its 2019 Region 1 Conference, April 12 to 14, 2019 in Hampton Roads, Virginia. The gathering will bring together hundreds of journalists, communication professionals, and students from across the U.S. Northeast to attend the two-day conference. The conference will have a three-pronged approach:

· Historical Research / Local & National Storytelling
· Media Training / Diversity Coaching & Career Advancement
· Community Engagement / Advocacy

The gathering will serve as a major milestone, as it will help commemorate the 400th anniversary when Africans arrived on American soil. Next year’s conference will also focus on improving the industry’s involvement in developing coverage of America’s diverse landscape, promoting dialogue for professional growth, and providing diversity training for all levels within the journalism industry. To note, due to last year’s successful effort, we are bringing back the Region I Job Fair and Diversity Management Training!
