Dash inducted into founders hall of fame

Leon Dash

Leon Dash, professor of journalism in the College of Media, was inducted into the National Association of Black Journalists Founders Hall of Fame on August 5 during the 2016 NABJ national convention.

Dash, along with 43 other journalists, founded NABJ in 1975, in part to address the lack of black journalists working in newspapers and broadcast media. Many of the founders were the first or second black journalists hired by their media outlets.

The significance of the founding of NABJ must be considered in the context of the time.
