The purpose of the NABJ Chapter is to bring together Chicago-area African-American journalists dedicated to truth and excellence in newsgathering and reporting, and equality in the media industry. To accomplish this mission, the organization seeks to: strengthen the ties between Blacks who work in majority-owned media and Blacks who work in the Black-owned media; assist Black journalists in upgrading their skills for upward mobility toward managerial and supervisory positions; encourage students to identify careers in journalism; and award scholarships to Black journalism students of accredited colleges and universities.
