NABJ Gears Up for Upcoming 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2025

Golden Anniversary Committee Announced

Founded on Dec. 12, 1975, the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is preparing to commemorate a major milestone in its history.

2025 will mark the organization’s 50th anniversary, and to prepare for the celebration, NABJ President Ken Lemon today announced the formation of a special golden anniversary committee composed of Founders, past presidents, former and present board members, chapter leaders, and longtime members.



Leading the committee will be:

“We are excited to begin preparations to honor our 44 Founders and the realization of their vision 50 years later,” said Lemon. “There’s no better time to kick off our activities than today as we celebrate our 48th birthday as an organization. We are grateful to our committee members who have graciously volunteered their time and talent to help us celebrate this incredible moment in our legacy. Each of them personifies our 50th anniversary theme, “Resilience. Advocacy. Excellence.”

Additional committee members (in alphabetical order) include:

“Our 50th celebration will also be an opportune time to not only pay homage to our Founders but also to our past presidents and Board members, and our faithful members, chapters, partners, and supporters. Without them, NABJ would not be the pillar that it is today,” said Carter. “We invite all who consider themselves NABJ Family to join us as we roll out the red carpet for this momentous occasion.”

NABJ’s 50th anniversary will also be highlighted during its 2025 annual convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
