WUABJ to Host First Event

The Winthrop University Association of Black Journalists (WUABJ) has kicked off its first school year as an official NABJ student chapter, and is presenting its first public event this Wednesday, September 22 at 7 p.m.

WUABJ is hosting a panel discussion focusing on the different ways minority issues are represented in the media; whether issues such as poverty, crime, and unemployment in minority communities are downplayed, exaggerated, or appropriately covered.

The students are requesting that CAABJ members and other journalists in the area come out to support them in this event. The panel discussion will be held inside Johnson Hall (Room 101), on Winthrop's campus, 1920 Alumni Drive, Rock Hill, S.C.

If you have any questions, contact Jasmine Rutledge, WUABJ member and event coordinator, at .
