‘Blogging While Brown’ Conference Comes to Los Angeles

The annual “Blogging While Brown” media conference drew more than 250 journalists and bloggers of color to Los Angeles over the weekend. Conference organizer Gina McCauley spoke with Maynard Institute’s Richard Prince about the turnout: “Traditional journalists made a strong showing this year and were a lot more prominent. We had about 250+ ppl. . . . we were bigger than last year. We had 4 times as many panels as last year. An NABJ [National Association of Black Journalists] blogger/Tweeter tweeted the entire conference and the awards show.”
