In mid-June I traveled to New Orleans for the National Association of Black Journalists’ 37th annual convention. NABJ selected 35 students to participate in a week-long student project and I was one of the students selected! We received hands-on newsroom training from amazing journalists and journalism educators. I worked with a talented and tremendously supportive team of photo and multimedia mentors: Akili Ramsess, Rashaun Rucker, Kimberly Mitchell and Ken-Yon Hardy. Our work can be seen here: http://nabjconvention.org/
Below are two photo stories I shot during my time in the NOLA.
