The nation’s 250 Black publishers headed to Portland this summer for the National Newspaper Publishers Association 2014 convention. One of biggest happenings on the NNPA calendar, the event brings publishers together to network, discuss the latest developments in news media, and reward the best work of 2013.
During the convention, NNPA members named Rosetta Miller Perry as Publisher of the Year for 2013 and Donald Suggs, Publisher of the St. Louis American top winner. In past years the convention has visited Atlanta, Ga.; New York; Nashville, Tenn.; Chicago and Seattle. This year for the first time the convention was held in Oregon.
The convention ran from June 25—28. The gathering included a prayer breakfast, workshops and an awards gala.
