What We Do…

The Triangle Association of Black Journalists is an organization of reporters, editors, photographers, and other media professionals working in the Raleigh-Durham, N.C., metropolitan area. We are a chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists.

Our Mission:
  • Support for black journalists and other media professionals, as well as others whose ambition is to work in the media.
  • Networking opportunities for Triangle Association of Black Journalists members.
  • Resources for the members of the black community, to help them understand how the media work and how to deal more effectively with the media.
  • Mentoring and guidance for students who aspire to media careers.
  • Media monitoring for the Triangle community, to ensure that issues involving the minority community are covered fairly and accurately.
"Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air."
— Henry Anatole Grunwald
