NABJ Indianapolis Warms Up

Things may be quiet on this blog, but they're jumping in Indianapolis this week at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention. I'm working with other professional journalists to help a group of very talented students put out the convention Web site and blog.

At left NABJ Online student reporter Darren Sands interviews Sharpton, who was broadcasting live from the conference.

We've already heard from notables like The Rev. Al Sharpton, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the world’s first black female president.

The last few weeks have been rife with trade events and announcements, so watch this space for updates soon.
