The Pulitzer Center will be attending the NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists) / NAHJ (National Association of Hispanic Journalists) 2022 Convention in Las Vegas, hosting one-on-one pitch sessions for journalists, and leading the panel "Black Voices in International Reporting."

The panel will focus on ways to strengthen Black voices in the coverage of global stories. Our panelists will discuss opportunities and obstacles they have encountered while reporting from abroad, the unique experiences that come with being a Black journalist, how they navigated cross-cultural issues and collaborated with local reporting partners, and how they funded their projects. 


Lottie Joiner (moderator) is an award-winning multiplatform journalist. The Washington, D.C.-based writer and editor covers race, social justice, civil rights, and culture.

Jacqueline Charles (speaker) is a Pulitzer Prize finalist and Emmy Award-winning Caribbean correspondent at the Miami Herald. She is also NABJ's Journalist of the Year.

Lionel Donovan (speaker) is an international journalist in broadcast news. He has reported from China, Kenya, and the U.S., and is now the Tacoma bureau chief for KING 5 News in Seattle.
