Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will speak to the largest gathering of black and Hispanic journalists since 2008, making remarks Friday to the joint convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists in Washington.
BuzzFeed, citing “multiple sources,” reports the format of Clinton’s address has not been set, and it is unclear if she will take questions. “In 2008, then Sen. Barack Obama addressed Unity, a convention which brought together 7,000 black, Latino, Asian, and Native American journalists together,” BuzzFeed reports. “The groups extended an invitation to Trump to speak as well, as many other Latino and black organizations have done in the lead up to the general election, but his campaign has not yet responded, sources said.”
The NABJ and NAHJ expect 4,000 journalists and media executives to attend this week’s joint conference.
