Hi everyone, Sorry I have been missing in action for so long. There has been a lot going on, starting with a recent job change and a move. I hope to keep blogging here, though it won’t be with the same regularity that you have seen in the past.
I’m in NY City this evening, and I got to bring along my lovely bride. I’ll be speaking tomorrow along side LaShawn Barber about blogging at the WJI Conference for Minority Journalists of Faith. I’ll post up some thoughts later tomorrow, but for the most part, I’m going to spend my time sharing with students and having a nice time with my wife.
Professional and college journalists of faith will gather together for the annual World Journalism Institute weekend conference for minority journalists of faith. The conference will take place at The King’s College in midtown Manhattan.
This unique conference is designed to provide the Christian minority journalist with a brief introduction to the courses and networking of the World Journalism Institute.
Those who attend will be encouraged and challenged to integrate their Christian faith and journalism practice in a fashion appropriate for today’s mainstream newsrooms. The conference is an opportunity to meet other like-minded journalists from around the country to discuss issues facing the minority journalist of faith.
The conference will be composed of lectures, seminars, media tours and fellowship. The third annual Samuel R. Cornish Lecture will be given in honor of Cornish, who founded the first African-American newspaper.
