DETROIT (WWJ) – The Detroit Chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists will host and roast a Pulitzer Prize winner and social activist.
On October 6, at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center, Angelo Henderson one of the founders of Detroit 300, will be on the hot-seat, the focus of a roast by the Detroit chapter.
The chapter expects to host more than 400 attendees – including several area journalists, religious and civic leaders to participate in the roast.
The Detroit Chapter is celebrating its 30th anniversary and launched a 30-30-30 campaign at the beginning of the year.
The group’s goal is to host 30 events and raise $30,000 to support our scholarship fund and programs. The chapter was established in December 1981 and officially founded in 1982.
The association provides scholarship opportunities in print and broadcast journalism in addition to addressing racism in news coverage and employment.
