Welcome to the Home of the 2012 NABJ Chapter of the Year!



Fresh Faces. New Energy. Real Goals.

Welcome to the home of the Atlanta Association of Black Journalists (AABJ). Our nonprofit has been serving African-American journalists in metro-Atlanta for more than 30 years. We sponsor the award-winning public affairs program "In Contact." We are also your local connection to the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).

If you're a media professional other than a working journalist, you are also welcome. We have members in Public Relations, Public Affairs, and Media Relations. Our members are in print, TV, online and in the literary world. We are innovative journalists, with an eye toward leveraging the Internet and its unique storytelling capabilities. Among our ranks are social media practitioners, digital content producers, and multimedia experts.

But AABJ is not just an organization; it's a place to find and offer help. The opportunities we make available to our members are invaluable and during these turbulent economic times, we are your source for job leads and career development programs. In addition, we award thousands of dollars in scholarships each year.
