About this title


In the 1990s the National Association of Black Journalists became a recognized name. Its members covered the big stories of the decade and also crusaded successfully for diversity in the media.

Since the late 1990s however, NABJ stagnated, largely because of apathy and fatigue. Alarmingly, NABJ and its allies became vulnerable to attack by right- and left-wing critics.

In this 3rd edition of the NABJ story, Wayne Dawkins defines what is right about NABJ, and he points to wrongs that must be corrected. Along the way, he cites important industry developments and social changes as markers.

DawkinsÂ’ historical record is a map to steer the association out of rugged waters.

From the Author:

Rugged Waters was nominated for a 2004 Library of Virginia Literary Award in non-fiction.

Selected "Must Read" new release at the 15th National African American Read-In, sponsored by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Store Description

Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU. If books are your drug of choice, Last Word has your fix!
