Frequently Asked Questions
Find out more about Black College Wire.

Black College Wire is a news service established in 2002 to promote the journalistic work of students at predominantly black colleges and universities and link those young journalists to training and employment opportunities in the field.

The news service was initiated as a project of the Black College Communication Association, an organization for faculty members teaching journalism and mass communications at black colleges and universities. Black College Wire partners have included The Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, The Black Collegian magazine, the National Association of Black Journalists and North Carolina A&T State University.

The project was originally funded by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, a Miami-based foundation that promotes excellence in journalism worldwide and invests in the vitality of 26 U.S. communities. Additional support has come from the Freedom Forum and the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.

The news service reinforces the training that students receive in the skills and principles needed to produce quality journalism. It also provides a regular news report reflecting black college life that is available to campus and other news outlets, and links students to training and employment opportunities in journalism and related fields.

Black College Wire offers assistance and training to college journalists upon request. For more information, e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
