Scripps Howard Professor Reviews an
Anthology on African-Americans in Communications

Scripps Howard associate professor Wayne Dawkins has published a review of “African Americans in Mass Communications: A Reader.” The review of the book appears in the September 2014 issue of American Journalism, a quarterly journal of the American Journalism Historians Association. Edited by Naeemah Clark and published by Peter Lang Publishing, the anthology ranges from discussing black grass-roots resistance movements in the Jim Crow South, to examining the power of the late entertainer James Brown. Dawkins is the historian of the National Association of Black Journalists, the producer of "Voting Rights Northern Style," a 2007 public broadcasting digital media project, and the author of three books: “Rugged Waters: Black Journalists Swim the Mainstream” [2003], “Black Journalists: The NABJ Story” [1997] and “City Son” [2012].
