Minority Student Journalism Workshop
Since 1977, the Greater St. Louis Association of Black Journalists has dedicated its existence to nurturing and grooming the next generation of communicators and journalists -- in hopes to diversify newsrooms and news coverage across the nation.
Each year high school and first-year college students have the opportunity to connect, explore and experience the worlds of print and multimedia journalism, broadcast media, public relations and photojournalism. Participants learn their way around cameras, navigate the ends and outs of formulating press releases and network with Black journalists working across the St. Louis area.
This workshop is free because we believe that is a key way to ensure we keep uplifting future generations.
The only thing we ask of students is they bring their passion, curiosity and a willingness to learn -- as we unpack an industry that needs them in it.
