The School of Communication welcomes a new student organization with the founding of the Ohio State chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists. NABJ is a professional organization and advocacy group that seeks to support the experiences and advancement of journalists of color and media professionals globally. The organization is also appropriate for those who have an interest in telling the stories of marginalized communities.
NABJ-Ohio State meetings will be held biweekly on Mondays at 6 p.m. in Journalism 106. Lecturer Jasmine Roberts serves as the faculty adviser, while student Attiyya Toure is the chapter’s first president. The first meeting was held Jan. 14.
“I am so proud of the students who started this effort and I’m honored to be the org’s faculty adviser,” Roberts shared on Twitter.
