    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will speak in Washington, D.C., this week at a convention for journalists of color.

    Clinton is scheduled to appear at the 2016 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) joint convention on Friday. 

    The event is closed to the public.

    “It is notable that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has recognized the 2016 NABJ-NAHJ Convention as a vital gathering to discuss her platform and the issues impacting black and Latino communities,” said NABJ President Sarah Glover, who is an NBC Universal employee. 

    Donald Trump also was invited to speak at the conference, an NABJ representative told NBC News. 

    President Barack Obama, Bob Dole and Al Gore attended the convention when they were presidential nominees.
