On this episode, we focus on The American Journalism Historians Association with its president, Dr. Donna Lampkin Stephens from the University of Central Arkansas and its first vice-president, Dr. Aimee Edmondson of Ohio University.

They explain what the organization does, talk about the importance of teaching the history of journalism, show how history often repeats itself, and share the group’s resources, including a highly-impressive speakers bureau. They also provide recommended reading (related to John Lewis), share their own research and salute other journalism organizations doing good work.
