Support Journal-isms

barry-sussman3
“Richard Prince’s Journal-isms is one of a kind. Good judgment, good reporting, good writing, much needed. It has earned all the support it can get.”

Barry Sussman, contributor to the Washington Post’s legendary history.

“No column exposes its readers to a greater depth of thought among black journalists than Richard’s Journal-isms. It’s so informative that whenever I give news quizzes to my newswriting class at Morehouse College, I always include at least one question stemming from Richard’s column. We can’t afford to lose it.”

” ‘Journal-isms’ as managed by Richard Prince is a vital sentry on the wall during this time of transition for the craft — as well as for the republic.Though corporate greed has narrowed the reach of standard media, technology allows broader participation by independent players.

” ‘Journal-isms’ is such a player of principle guarding against the erosion of a ‘free press’ that Thomas Jefferson foresaw as a threat to citizens making sovereign decisions in a democracy. Additionally, Prince’s online journal stands forceful vigil against an even more insidious, internal threat — the media’s historic devaluation of African Americans as sources of news and also their exclusion as gatherers, decision-makers, editors and presenters of news and analysis.

” ‘Stay Woke’ indeed.”

Les Payne, retired editor and columnist, Newsday; co-founder and fourth president, National Association of Black Journalists

“As a veteran reporter, I turn to Richard Prince’s Journal-isms all the time for the latest information on people of color in our business. There is no spin, no slant, just the facts to keep us informed. I also appreciate that he holds journalists and media companies accountable . . .  . Keep up the good work. #NoSpinAllowed” (Courtesy Rebecca Aguilar)

Rebecca Aguilar, freelance reporter; vice president, Society of Professional Journalists-Fort Worth; former vice president, National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

“Lots of people talk about the need for media diversity, but all roads lead back to the same things: organizations and networks to help journalists of color support each other, and someone to shed light on those efforts. Instead of trying to re-invent the wheel every two years, the best thing we can do is support the work of Richard Prince, AAJA, and other groups that have been here doing the work for years.”

“Some media newsletters/websites I read are simply rehashes of what I saw on Media Twitter the day earlier, but Richard Prince’s Journal-isms casts a wider net and brings in more news sources, links, and viewpoints on diversity and other media issues. His hard work is even more important today, and deserves our support.”

As a journalist of color, I rely on Journal-isms to keep me connected to the issues and many of the people I care about.

“A few years ago I had the opportunity to do a Fulbright program in the U.S. and I saw closely the important work that the journalist Richard Prince is constantly developing to give visibility to the issues that are important for the global Black community. The work he develops has inspired me a lot to develop projects here in Brazil and keeps me updated on what happens to my African sisters and brothers around the world. He is a fantastic role model for young Black journalists.”

“I’ve known Richard Prince for about 20 years, ever since we worked together on the NABJ Journal. I was editor, he had various other roles — but often, his job was even more important than mine. He was then, as he is now, a servant to truth, fairness and justice in the media industry.

“Journal-isms provides something that no other media industry blog has: that same truth, fairness and justice when it comes to coverage by and about minorities in our industry. Richard never whitewashes anything. Even ‘good news’ announcements are researched thoroughly. Journal-isms points out issues important to our community and spotlights leaders of color in a way that no other publication does.

“As a former editor-turned-educator, I have used his blog in my classes, showing students what is happening in the media industry. His blog would leave a critical gap if it were not there. I encourage anyone who holds these same values dear to help keep Journal-isms alive. Thank you, Richard, for all you do!”

Yvette Walker, assistant dean of student affairs at Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication and veteran newspaper and website editor

” ‘Richard Prince’s Journal-isms’ is one of the few things I always read and always WANT to read. It’s a check-up on what black and brown folks are doing in journalism and how journalism is doing by us — written by someone who both knows and cares. There is nothing else like it.”

“I devoted more than 60 years of my life to news reporting, from a weekly Black newspaper to the Washington Post and then on to more than a half-century with the best little magazine ever — JET.

“Now, at 98, I have few words left to say, but I can’t let this opportunity pass without expressing the greatest respect and appreciation — and the highest recommendation — for an enterprise that today carries on the mission in the finest tradition — ‘Richard Prince’s Journal-isms.’

“Read it, appreciate its unique contribution in challenging times, and make sure we don’t lose it.”

“Borrowing a line from Voltaire, if ‘Journal-isms’ didn’t exist, we would have to invent it. Richard Prince’s column is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the importance of diversity in the news media. Prince’s insightful overage of this issue is without rival.

“As a program officer for news media and journalism at the Ford Foundation, I was particularly proud to support Richard’s column, which was the definitive voice promoting and implementing new and meaningful ways to achieve diversity in news media staffing and coverage.”

Calvin Sims,  president, International House; former New York Times foreign correspondent and Ford Foundation executive.

“Not since Steven Brill’s news watch magazine, Brill’s Content, have the American public and news-junkies-mavens-movers&shakers been better served than with ‘Richard Prince’s Journal-isms.’ The New York Times’ credo, ‘All the News Fit to Print’, could be easily applied to ‘Journal-isms’ with a slight change, ‘Making Sense of All the News Fit to Print’.

“Understanding the dynamics of journalism diversity on its micro and macro levels provides incredible understanding of how the Fourth Estate really works in this struggling democracy – and ‘Journal-isms’ is the only medium of its kind that understands that.”

“Richard Prince sent me away. I don’t remember his exact words, but it was at one of his regular D.C. dinners that he pulled me aside, handed me the phone and said, ‘Talk. They need an editor in The Bahamas and I mentioned your name. Talk.’

“The decision to get on that phone and the later decision to take the managing director position at a newspaper in the Caribbean changed the trajectory of my life — and my career (or maybe it fulfilled by destiny). Ten years later, I am still outside of the country promoting the craft the best I know how — editing, training, coaching, mentoring, fighting for press freedom.

“Richard Prince has ALWAYS been in my corner, as a friend and as an adviser. No matter how far away I am, he is there — encouraging, cheering, clapping, looking for the next scoop. As for his column, it is a must-read for anyone who wants to know anything about what is happening in the media with minorities and globally with press freedom.

“Journal-isms reaches me around the world. It inspires me, sometimes makes me angry and often leaves me just shaking my head. But it always informs. Thank you, Prince, for your dedication, your insatiable curiosity and, most importantly, your friendship and support.”

Alison Bethel McKenzie, veteran journalist, visiting professor of print and investigative journalism at the Indian Institute of Journalism and New Media in Bangalore, India; vice president, Media Institute of the Caribbean.
