The Baltimore Association of Black Journalists hosted the NABJ Region 1 Conference in “Charm City.” More than 100 journalists and media-related professionals kicked off the weekend with an opening reception at “Nancy by SNAC” Friday April 29th.  Saturday attendees spent a full day at Morgan State University’s School of Global Journalism and Communication where they participated in a day filled with professional development, networking, an interview with Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings and a town hall tackling Baltimore a year following the death of Freddie Gray and the unrest that followed.

Here are nearly 500 photos from the NABJ Region 1 Conference:
