WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. 11, 2017) --  
The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) mourns the loss of Simeon Booker, a pioneering journalist, author and chronicler of the Civil Rights Movement.
 
Booker, the Jet reporter who brought the 1955 murder of Emmett Till to the forefront of national news, died Dec. 10 at the age of 99, in an assisted-living community in Solomons, Maryland. His wife, Carol, confirmed his death to the Washington Post.
 
"Simeon Booker's remarkable career, spanning more than six decades, reminds us how important chronicling the truth and speaking truth to power via the written word is," said NABJ President Sarah Glover. "Booker's reports during the Civil Rights Movement shed light on the country's ills, bringing much-needed perspective; and he did so all while risking his own life to tell the story. Simeon Booker is a role model for black journalists and his life's work is an example of media excellence that all journalists should strive for."
