About the TBABJ
Founded as the Suncoast Black Communicators, the group became
the Tampa Bay area's affiliate of the National Association
of Black Journalists in 1990. The TBABJ now represents journalists
of color in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Citrus, Hernando, Polk,
Manatee and Pasco counties along the Suncoast of Florida.
Their purpose is to bring together people
of African decent who work in the media, or media-related
jobs throughout the Tampa Bay area. The Tampa Bay Association
of Black Journalists strives to help ensure diversity in
area media and accurate, balanced coverage of communities
of color while serving as a resource for both established
and aspiring communicators of African decent.
The group meets
at 10:45 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month,
beginning with the March meeting.
