Democratic Presidential candidate, U. S. Sen. Barack Obama; U. S. Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the dean of the Congressional Black Caucus; and talk radio mogul Tom Joyner are among the stars to be celebrated by the National Newspaper Publishers Association during Black Press Week March 14-15.

During the annual News Maker of the Year Awards banquet March 13, a staple event of the week, Obama will be celebrated as NNPA’s news maker of the year. Conyers, the first African-American to serve as chairman of House Judiciary Committee, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, and radio host Tom Joyner, president of Reach Media, will be the recipient of the Public Service Award in honor of his activism and service on behalf of African-American youth, including his campaign to free then incarceraed Genarlow Wilson of Atlanta and send him to Morehouse College.
