THE ROCHESTER ASSOCIATION OF BLACK JOURNALISTS
WYOMA BEST SCHOLARSHIP
Please consider donating to this vital cause
The Wyoma Best Scholarship supports a graduating Black/African American high school senior in the Rochester area who will be attending a 4 year institution of higher learning to study journalism or a communications-related field. We believe it's important to support these students as they make way in the journalism industry and ensure different perspectives are captured. Your donation no matter the size will have an impact that will reverberate in history. All donations are tax deductible as Rochester Association of Black Journalists is a 501 c(3) organization.
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.
