Amongst his many notable assignments, he reported on Martin Luther King’s famous ‘I have a dream’ speech in Washington in 1963, taught generations of reporters at the Columbia School of Journalism that diversity matters, and entered the 2015 Hall of Fame of the US Black Journalists’ Association earlier this year — writes Thomas L Blair, editor/publisher, Chronicleworldwordpress.com; thomb91@gmail.com.
