Event and Media Availability Details
WHERE: Bentley College, LaCava Center, Waltham
To celebrate the Unity year, the Boston Globe will be hosting a pre-Unity breakfast on Wed. July 16 from 8 am to 9:30 am for all members of the Asian American Journalists Association, National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and Native American Journalists Association in New England.
It will be an opportunity to network and meet fellow minority journalists from around the region, as well as hear from a distinguished panel on race and the presidential campaign. Some issues that will be explored: Is America ready to elect a person of color as president? How has the media handled the coverage of a woman candidate? A black candidate? How would the election of a person of color affect affirmative action?
