ABOUTThe NABJ Global Journalism Task Force exists to increase and improve black journalists’ coverage of other countries as well as the African Diaspora by strengthening resources, maintaining an international sourcebook and fostering the idea that reporters need not be foreign correspondents to cover news in the world’s 195 countries. The task force recognizes groundbreaking work by African journalists with the annual Percy Qoboza Award and provides opportunities for foreign coverage through the Ethel Payne Fellowship.
