BOSTON, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) will be hosting a luncheon on race in America at the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Convention & Career Fair on July 31, 2014.
During the 90-minute luncheon, Emmy award-winning journalist Ed Gordon will moderate a discussion with Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree on the challenges that African Americans face in our society today, as well as the strategies that can help overcome these challenges.
This luncheon comes on the heels of the release of a survey by Ebony Magazine and the WKKF that found that Black families are burdened by many barriers to success, including access to health care, quality public education and a lack of well-paying jobs.
All media covering the event must check in at the NABJ Press Room and receive onsite credentials. The Press Room is in Hynes Convention Center Room 202.
