Black Press On Air Force One with President

No matter how you look at it, slice it, boil it, the chance encounter of  seven black journalists coming together on Air Force One to cover the President of the United States as he flies to talk to the NAACP at their centennial anniversary is astounding.  Unprecedented.

When is the last time anyone has seen or heard of the President’s plane being filled with black media covering his movement from our perspective AND on his way to, not only an African American event, but an extraordinary event in history…100 years of NAACP.  The photo says it all as they lean in as though joining friends at the cookout or anyplace else for a weekend getaway.

Read the heartfelt blog on the occasion here.  Savor these moments in history.
