WASHINGTON, D.C.–The casts of OWN’s “Greenleaf” and “Queen Sugar” were among those who attended the annual A&E Task Force reception at the 2017 NABJ Convention and Career Fair held in New Orleans from Aug. 9-13. NABJ even received a shout-out on this week’s episode of “Queen Sugar” and by Director Ava DuVernay on Twitter.

Once again, the A&E Task Force presented their “How I Landed My Dream Job Before 30” panel, which featured Justin Tinsley of ESPN’s “The Undefeated,” Sylvia Obell of Buzzfeed and others for an in-depth conversation on how they landed at some of the biggest media brands before hitting a milestone age.

Veteran broadcast journalist Tony Harris was back to present his new documentary “Black and Blue,” which is a timely look at the state of police affairs and race relations on the heels of the controversial verdicts involving police shootings this week.

Attendees took time to network with A&E members at the convention, including Task Force chair Kelley L. Carter of ESPN’s “The Undefeated,” Gerrick Kennedy of the L.A. Times, Eric Deggans of NPR, Patrick Riley of the talent agency ICM, among others.
