Facts about the Birmingham Association of Black Journalist
The Birmingham Association of Black Journalists (BABJ) was founded in 1983 by a group of media professionals who wanted to encourage the employment and retention of journalists of color in the Birmingham area.
The organization has grown from a dozen journalists who could fit around a table at the Birmingham Press Club to an organization of more than 50 members including print, broadcast news, public relations and marketing professionals. We are affiliated with the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).
BABJ continues to promote the employment and retention of media professionals while seeking to provide opportunities for professional growth and development. We also offer scholarships and guidance to students considering careers in the media.
