The Berkeley Chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists is sponsoring “Meet the Reporters: A Lively Discussion” on Saturday, Feb. 21, from 12-2 p.m. at UC Berkeley’s Northgate Library. Interested students are welcome to attend.
Established in 1975, NABJ is the largest organization of journalists of color in the nation, with more than 4,100 members. It provides educational, career development and support to black journalists worldwide.
Instructor’s Note: This meeting is a good candidate for your upcoming “Real News Reporting” assignment, as well as an opportunity to hear from and meet with some reporters. You can attend this session, takes notes/quotes, and write it up as a hard news story, or take a more feature-style approach by perhaps focusing on (by interviewing) one of the speakers.
