All media will need to apply for credentials through the official credentialing process. Details for that process will be posted here as soon as we receive them from the White House. If you are interested in receiving information about how to apply for credentials, please send an email to the White House Communications office at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be an advisory sent from the White House during the week of Commencement that outlines the process.
For ideas and inquiries about advance stories, please contact the Office of Communications at Morehouse College at 404-215-2680 or visit our electronic newsroom located on the College's website.
All media will access their parking areas on Atlanta Student Movement Boulevard (Fair Street). All media vehicles will enter Atlanta Student Movement Boulevard from Lowery Boulevard. There will be no media access to Atlanta Student Movement Boulevard from Northside Drive, or from any of the side streets that are connected.
All media, including broadcast and satellite trucks, will park on Atlanta Student Movement Boulevard between Lowery Boulevard and SNCC Way. Someone will be there to direct you to the proper placement on the street for parking.
Spaces are available on a first-come, first served basis. The street will be blocked off and identification must be shown for access. Please be prepared to show your organization-issued credential to gain clearance to this area.
Media will check-in at tables located by the entry gate on Fair Street, near Clark Atlanta University. Upon clearing check-in, you will be issued an official White House media credential and proceed through magnetometers for security clearance. Someone will then escort you to the designated area for media, based on the type of credential you have been issued.
**Note: once you have entered the designated media area, re-entry will not be allowed. Water stations and portable restrooms will be located in that area for your use.
