KCABJ Officers Speak With Journalists From Other Nations

Kansas City Association of Black Journalists President Lewis W. Diuguid and KCABJ Treasurer Bette Tate-Beaver spoke this month with journalists from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Australia, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam. The visitors were invited to the United States by the U.S. State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program. Global Ties KC at Union Station made the meeting possible with KCABJ. The journalists were particularly interested in race relations in the United States and how that affects journalists of color in mainstream newsrooms. This is the second year in a row that foreign journalists have met with KCABJ officers.
