African journalists visit USF St. Petersburg

Journalists from 18 African countries visited St. Petersburg to discuss journalistic practices and share their experiences from Oct. 28 to Nov. 3.

USF St. Petersburg's journalism department hosted the journalists through the Edward R. Murrow Program. The program selects international journalists to visit the U.S.

During their stay, the 19 African journalists participated in sessions on USF St. Petersburg's campus and toured local media organizations.

This is the second year USFSP has partnered with the Murrow Program.

"We learn from our visitors, many of whom have risked their lives to get stories their governments don't want published," said Dr. Robert Dardenne, chair and associate professor of the journalism department.

Emily Young, Neighborhood news watcher, is a freelancer who has lived on Florida's Gulf coast her entire life and has never seen snow. She is currently completing an undergraduate degree at the University of South Florida.
