Thousands of journalists from around the country have converged on Boston for the annual National Association of Black Journalists Convention. The organizers say the event on the east cost has sold out at least two hotels in the area. Attendees will participate in various seminars to help improve their craft in various fields such as journalism and public relations. The Factor officially kicked off the event with my courtesy suite welcoming many of the members from Region 5 which includes Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Here are some of the people who dropped by the welcoming for the official first night of the conference!
