Journalism jobs decreased significantly in the last decade and so have training opportunities for students, including Black college students. This essay explores the national student journalism project Black on Campus, a partnership with a national magazine and a university research center, that aimed to offer Black college students an opportunity to gain journalism training and be published by a national publication. This essay details how the program filled a gap in journalism training and education for Black students and documented the experiences of Black students during high racial polarization in the nation and on college campuses.
