The first two keynote speakers for CAMP 2021 have been scheduled – and you won’t want to miss them at this year’s online and on-demand conference. More information, CAMP schedule and registration information coming SOON! Watch this space and here.
Cooper’s story will be featured in a new exhibit at the Museum of Broadcast Communications, Riding the Wave: A. Century of Radio. Schultz is executive director of the museum.
JAWS’ own Deborah Douglas will keynote as well. An interviewer hasn’t been chosen as of publication. Douglas, former JAWS treasurer, is the new co-editor in chief of The Emancipator, where she is reimagining an abolitionist news outlet for a new day. Formerly the Eugene S. Pulliam Distinguished Visiting Professor of Journalism at DePauw University, she has served as senior leader with The OpEd Project, amplifying underrepresented expert voices in the public conversation. Douglas is author of “Moon U.S. Civil Rights Trail: A Traveler’s Guide to the People, Places, and Events That Made the Movement.” (Moon Travel, 2021), and a contributor to the New York Times bestselling “Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America, 1619-2019.” (Random House, 2021).

This year’s Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) will take place October 15-17 online and on demand
