Morgan Introduces New School to Nation’s Black Journalists

The National Association of Black Journalists, the nation’s largest and oldest advocacy organization for journalists-of-color, recently concluded its 2013 national convention in Orlando, Florida. It is where Morgan State University President David Wilson and Dean DeWayne Wickham announced the University’s new School of Global Journalism and Communication. Morgan hosted a reception at the convention to introduce the latest addition to the higher education landscape for the training of future journalists.

Those in attendance included some of the future journalists enrolled in the new school, playwright David Talbert, an alumnus who is putting his Morgan training to good use with his new movie, “Baggage Claim,” set to debut in September, and actor Derek Luke.
