Inside the 2016 DNC as Hillary Clinton accepts Democratic Party’s nomination

For the duration of the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, our reporters have been covering the people and activities throughout the convention. From early morning delegate breakfasts at far off hotels, to keynote speakers each night inside the Wells Fargo Center, journalists for the Temple DNC News Bureau captured in words, images and video the people that came to, and for, the convention.

In celebration of this historic convention, we bring you pictures in and around the fourth and final night of the convention. A night where the country saw for the first time ever, one of the two major political parties nominate a woman for president of the United States.

Thank you to all our partners and correspondents.

But DiRienzo and 19 other Temple University students have far greater responsibilities this week as part of the Temple DNC News Bureau, a class of student journalists serving as field correspondents for media organizations unable to send their own reporters to Philadelphia.

Smile: Spokane, Washington Clinton delegate wants accessible oral health care
