From a memo sent from @NPearlstine to staffers:— Erin B. Logan (@erinblogan) June 9, 2020

Per NBC News: "Effective immediately, NBC News and MSNBC will capitalize the 'B' in Black when referring to people or the community across all the networks’ platforms."— ErikWemple (@ErikWemple) June 12, 2020
