Description

For our 2nd annual “Black Men in Media” event, we're happy to host Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier, Rolling Stone's Jamil Smith, and UCLA's Darnell Hunt. NABJLA's vice president, Jarrett Hill, will moderate the discussion on recent and the most pervasive images of Black men in media.

Join us at 11:00 a.m. at SAG/AFTRA (5757 Wilshire Blvd.) on Saturday, June 1 as part of NABJ’s nationwide Black Male Media Project which aims to help change the narrative around the lives and images of Black men in the news and in society.

Tickets are $5, with all proceeds going to our scholarship program. Tickets are free for NABJLA dues-paying members with discount code.

Parking is free. The SAG/AFTRA parking lot is undergoing construction, so please allot extra time. This means all attendees will have to park in the garage behind the building, which can be accessed off of Curson and Masselin Aves. You will pull a ticket and we will validate.
