Legendary civil rights journalist and activist Dorothy Butler Gilliam will share her aptly titled new memoir, «Trailblazer: A Pioneering Journalist's Fight to Make the Media Look More Like America,» at a National Press Club Headliners book event on Monday, January 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the Club’s Zenger Room.

Gilliam’s more than 60-year-career in journalism began in the segregated South where she made a name for herself reporting on the integration of schools in Little Rock, Arkansas for the Tri-State Defender. In 1961 she became the first black woman reporter for the Washington Post and worked for the paper for more than 30 years as an editor and columnist covering issues like politics, education and race. She went on to become the president of the National Association of Black Journalists and founding director of the Young Journalists Development Project.

This event will feature a presentation by the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. Tickets are $5 for National Press Club members and $10 for the general public. When purchasing tickets for this event online, attendees will also have the option of purchasing copies of the book at check-out.

Books will also be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the non-profit affiliate of the Club, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, so we kindly ask that you leave all outside books and memorabilia at home.
