Event: The National Association of Black Journalists
"We need to be vigilant because our voices still need to be heard." - Maureen Bunyan, Co-Founder of the NABJ
I was honored to have been invited to the annual Griot Drum Awards & Scholarship Banquet hosted by the NABJ's Tampa Bay chapter! WFLA's Rod Carter awarded select USF faculty and students the opportunity to attend this incredible event.
I was among some of Tampa's most influential journalists and learning the culture and history behind the adaptation of Tampa Bay's chapter was so inspiring.
It was truly amazing being among such beautifully diverse and wickedly talented people in the industry who are making waves in the journalism community.
