Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 20, 2005
There are two major events this year for Black journalists, and BlackNews.com is sponsoring both of them. The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) convention will be held in August 2005 in Atlanta, and the Black Press All-Star Awards and Media Clinic will be held in September 2005 in Chicago.
BlackNews.com (http://www.blacknews.com) is a popular online destination for African-American news and issues. The site is owned by LA-based Diversity City Media, and has grown to be a trusted resource for the latest information in the Black community.
Visitors to BlackNews.com will find daily news content from the Associated Press and BlackPR.com (also owned by Diversity City Media), as well as weekly editorials and a weekly comic strip.
"We are a media company," comments Dante Lee, CEO and president of Diversity City Media. "Our mission is simple: provide quality news to draw readers, and sell ad space to marketers."
"However, we are more than just that," Lee adds. "Unlike most companies, we support and respect our industry, and we are strong supporters of African-American journalism. When we became aware of these events, we immediately got involved."
Diversity City Media will play crucial roles in promoting the two events, and staff members from the company will be on-site to volunteer. In addition, Dante himself will be on-site to serve on panels at both events.
