By Lynn Jones-Turpin – After being inactive for several years, the Northeast Florida Chapter of the  National Association of Black Journalists (NEFLNABJ) has been reignited to build on its past and prepare for the future to uplift and strengthen media professionals on the First Coast. The Black history month mixer was an open house to engage interested members and to promote the chapter’s events, workshops and outreach programs for 2023. Listed in 2011as the Jacksonville Association of Black Communicators (JABC), the chapter was led by Duval’s award-winning columnist Tonyaa Weathersbee and public relations/marketing maverick Charles Griggs. “This has been long overdue. We are excited to welcome Duvals mediaprofessionals to the chapter. We have an exciting year planned,” said Marketing Director Al Pete. The chapter is presently aligning their media strategies with the national chapter to offer training, occupation advancement opportunities, events and advocacy initiatives for Black journalists on the first coast.
