The National Association of Black Journalists has voted unanimously to host its 2018 Convention in Detroit.
The event has not been held in the city since 1992. That year saw the organization’s largest convention with 5,000 attendees.
NABJ Detroit Chapter President Felecia Henderson says organizers are excited about coming back to Detroit.
“I think the deciding factor was just looking at how Detroit has turned itself around and the fact that we’ve had conventions here once before,” Henderson says. “We had them in 1982 and the last one was in 1992.”
Henderson says the career fair will include workshops and opportunities for journalists to network.
