All it takes is a short conversation with me to know how proud I am of my alma mater, University of Maryland College Park. As a graduate of their Philip Merrill College of Journalism, I was honored to virtually return to campus for and important discussion. I joined a panel with Jason Newton and Katti Gray for the University of Maryland, College Park chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists to share our career journeys and experiences as Black journalists. The event was moderated by two Merrill College students, seniors Brandie Bland and April Howard. Listen and learn as we had an amazing, inspiring time. Share with an aspiring journalist as well.
