Black members of the media have an important and challenging role in covering the news of today while managing their own response and emotions to stories that hit close to home.

Abel Communications partnered with Nicki Mayo, veteran multimedia journalist, founder of Nicki Mayo News and President of the Baltimore Association of Black Journalists, to lead a panel on the intensity of news coverage today and how race inevitably plays a part in how news is reported and received. 

Nicki was joined by our panelists:

  • Andrea McDaniels, Deputy Editorial Page Editor at The Baltimore Sun
  • Brian Waters, Communications Specialist at Johns Hopkins Medicine
  • Sean Yoes, Baltimore Editor at The AFRO-American
