July 31, 2020

The University of King’s College has extended its financial sponsorship of J-School Noire (JSN), an educational initiative spearheaded by the Canadian Association of Black Journalists (CABJ). The financial commitment will ensure that Black youth across Nova Scotia will be trained and mentored by Black media professionals in 2021-22. “JSN is unique in that we are connecting Black youth with Black journalists for a hands-on, on-campus learning experience,” said Nadia Stewart, CABJ Executive Director. “By empowering youth to tell their own stories, we’re giving them the tools and connecting them with mentors who’ll help them find their voice and even launch their own platforms. These kids are the future of this industry.” U of King’s College (NS)
