The Pioneering Black Women Journalists Honored At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner

As Blavity previously reported, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner returned last weekend after a two-year COVID-19 absence, bringing back the usual mix of politicians, journalists and celebrities to roast one another and promote the importance of a free press. This year’s affair brought the usual laughs, as President Joe Biden got in good jabs against Republicans and Fox News. And host Trevor Noah roasted everyone involved. One of the most serious and poignant moments of the night, however, came when the ceremony honored two groundbreaking Black women journalists, Alice Dunnigan and Ethel Payne.
