Seeking Truth and Justice
Inspired by the Black Press
Rooted in the Black press's history of understanding of journalism as pro-democracy activism, the Center for Journalism & Democracy seeks to honor and disseminate the traditions of the Black press.
A New Leader in Investigative Journalism
Founded at Howard University, long an epicenter of Black intellectual thought and home to the nation's oldest Black collegiate newspaper, the Center will make Howard the hub of its efforts to develop and train budding journalists across the diaspora of HBCUs.
Pushing the Field Towards Pro-Democracy Journalism
American democracy is in peril. The Center for Journalism & Democracy exists to enforce the understanding that for journalists there can be no neutrality when it comes to democracy, as a free press cannot exist without a free and open society where those in power govern with the consent of the governed.
