President's Message.

I'd like to welcome you on behalf of the Greater St. Louis Association of Black Journalists, the St. Louis area chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists.

For 46 years GSLABJ has served the St. Louis community by advocating for African American journalists and communications professionals.

In 1977, GSLABJ established the Minority Student Journalism Workshop -- a free program providing training and networking resources to high school and first-year college students. The program served as a model for other NABJ chapters' student workshops.


I am honored to serve as President of GSLABJ and continue our mission to advocate, inspire and champion efforts to elevate Black journalists not only in St. Louis, but across the nation.



Latonya Yarbro

2023 Greater St. Louis Association of Black Journalists President
