By BBN Staff: World Press Freedom-day is celebrated annually on May 3, 2018.
The theme this year is ‘Keeping Power in Check: Media, Justice and The Rule of Law’, highlighting the importance of proper journalism.
The National Institute of Culture and History (NICH), through the Institute of Social and Cultural Research and the Goldson House for Democracy and Patriotism will host “Let Journalism Live!” to honor journalists and journalism in Belize.
The event will also be an opportunity to remember Philip Stanley Wilberforce Goldson as a gifted writer, who was well-recognized for his skills as a journalist. He wrote numerous articles published by The Belize Billboard, the foremost newspaper of the time, which championed the cause of Belizean workers and the unemployed.
On Thursday, May 3, guest speakers at the Goldson House will be Adele Ramos in the morning session at 10:00 a.m. and Paul Lopez will lead the afternoon session at 1:30 p.m. Both journalists will be discussing topics such as the history of journalism, importance of journalism and its influence on society.
Schools, the media and journalists are invited to this event.
Guided tours will be suspended at the Goldson House between 9:00 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. to accommodate the event.
