THE ROCHESTER ASSOCIATION OF BLACK JOURNALISTS
BLACK CINEMA SERIES
In partnership with the Little Theatre The Black Cinema Series celebrates both documentary and narrative expressions in black cinema with a curated film choice every month. To complement each film, The Little will host discussions led by RABJ members, local experts, community leaders, and filmmakers after each series screening. The series began during Black History Month in 2017 with the critically acclaimed I Am Not Your Negro.
Projects & events
RABJ hosts a series of events and carries out numerous projects that celebrate and supports the life and achievements of Black journalists and aspiring journalists throughout the Rochester area.
The Rochester Association of Black Journalists is a chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists that covers the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.
The organization works to groom future journalists of color, help chapter members thrive in their current roles, and advocate for African-Americans to be depicted in a fair and balanced way in the media.
As a 501c(3) non-profit, we are committed to providing services such as education, scholarships, and advocacy for Black people in our community to improve representation in the field of journalism. Please consider donating to the cause as we cannot do this without you.
