Outrage from President Trump’s Immigration Policy Has the SCLC Exploring What?

radiofacts.com Notice the title and the first paragraph. This is why we don't print many press releases. This is really an ad. They really want people to go to the conference. Yep. Nobody cares about what you are "exploring" like the Nike commercial says "Just DO it" then let us run the pictures. In addition, with all DUE respect, if I was Dr. Charles Steele and in Brazil right now ... my big ass would be on vacation. We have enough kids HERE that struggle with poverty.

Outrage from President Trump’s Immigration Policy and His Attacks on the Poor Has the SCLC Exploring Brazil “March on Washington” 

ATLANTA- Dr. Charles Steele, Jr., President and CEO of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), is calling on “all people of good will”, who are outraged by President Donald Trump’s controversial immigration policies, to join the SCLC at its 60th Annual Convention July 12 -15, 2018 in Washington, which will focus on the current conditions of global racism and poverty. Dr. Steele, who heads the organization co-founded and first led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., believes the people’s desire to send a strong message about immigration, poverty and other critical matters in the U.S. could lead to another massive March on Washington like the historic rally inspired by Dr. King nearly 55 years ago on August 28, 1963. “We’re witnessing partisan political gamesmanship when we should be talking about protecting children,” said Dr. Steele regarding President Trump’s most recent “zero tolerance” immigration policy, which has spark hundreds of demonstrations across the nation. “Separating children from their parents at the border is an abomination! This is a humanitarian disgrace.” Dr. Steele, who has been actively involved with The Civil Rights Movement for more than 40 years, says he is hopeful that President Trump can find empathy for the thousands of immigrants affected by his policy. “I recommend that the President considers the human aspect of this tragic situation and not merely the politics,” said Dr. Steele. “Immigrants are trying to get to America because they’re being terrorized in their own homes. They’re faced with daily violence, poor living conditions, and their human rights are being threatened every day.” Dr. Steele, who is in Brazil examining the international concerns of poor people, added, “I will get a global perspective on the problems afflicting the poor and really highlight their concerns at this year’s conference.” The 60th Annual Convention will also have a heavy focus on mobilizing large groups of people of color to “get out and vote”. There will be various workshops and panels on the power of voting. ““People are mad, people are moved, and people are fed up. It’s time to use this energy in a constructive manner,” said Dr. Steele, who believes if the people unify around another SCLC- inspired massive rally it can surpass the 250,000 who gathered in Washington in 1963. The SCLC Convention will run from July 12 to 15 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C, 999 9th Street NW.

Robert G. McGruder wins NABJ Legacy Award

The National Association of Black Journalists has selected longtime Detroit Free Press executive editor Robert G. "Bob" McGruder as the recipient of the 2018 NABJ Legacy Award. Presented annually to a print, broadcast, digital or photojournalist of extraordinary accomplishment who has broken barriers and blazed trails, McGruder's stellar career perfectly embodies the spirit of the award. McGruder, who died in 2002, is posthumously granted this honor due to his legacy of living the actions necessary to improve newsroom diversity and journalism overall. As an experienced newsroom leader, McGruder understood implicit bias and hired in spite of it. His mentorship created a legion of award-winning writers, editors and managers - many of whom went on to be top newsroom leaders themselves. "Bob wanted to make sure that people in the newsroom wrote news that reflected the community," says Rochelle Riley, a metro columnist for the Detroit Free Press. She is one of many writers hired, and pushed, by McGruder. "It didn't matter what color you were. He got it. He made the word diversity mean something. For him, it was an action." McGruder had a long career of breaking newsroom barriers. He became the first black reporter at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland in 1963, the first black president of the Associated Press Managing Editors in 1995, and went on to become the first black executive editor of the Detroit Free Press in 1996. He sat on the board of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and served as a Pulitzer Prize nominating judge. When he won the John S. Knight Gold Medal, the highest award given to employees of now-defunct newspaper giant Knight Ridder, he once again pushed for balance. Said McGruder: ''I represent the African Americans, Latinos, Arab Americans, Asians, Native Americans, gays and lesbians, women and all the others we must see represented in our business offices, newsrooms and our newspapers if we truly want to meet the challenge of serving our communities.'' McGruder was a beloved force whose quiet, yet the intense manner of speaking and editing became the stuff of legend. The 2002 NABJ Lifetime Achievement Award recipient was a calm coach and a fierce advocate. He died, at age 60, of cancer. "Bob's career impacted hundreds of journalists through his mentorship, offering career development and guidance that goes beyond words," said NABJ President Sarah Glover. "He certainly left his imprint on Detroit journalism, and it makes it even more special that NABJ is honoring him in him his hometown." McGruder will be honored at the NABJ Salute to Excellence Awards during the NABJ Convention and Career Fair on Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center.
