The National Association of Black Journalists this weekend honored Miami Herald Caribbean correspondent Jacqueline Charles as best international newspaper reporter for her 2008 coverage of Haiti, “A Trail of Grief.” The award was announced Saturday at NABJ’s convention in Tampa.
Charles, a 15-year veteran Herald reporter, was honored for her compelling and comprehensive coverage of last year’s series of tropical storms that devastated several cities throughout Haiti. Accompanied by photographer Patrick Farrell, the two produced heart-rending reports on the catastrophic damage done by a series of hurricanes. Patrick Farrell was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for the photos that accompanied Charles’ reports.
