Black Magazines: An Exploratory Study.
The purpose of this project was to collect data concerning the black magazine in order to assess whether or not there was sufficient material to merit further study of black publications. A pilot study revealed that the purely mass magazines act as forums for expression and appear to have the following recurrent themes: black awareness, survival, identity, liberation, black aesthetics, and pan-Africanism. The trend in black magazines appears to be from religious to general to nationalistic. It was concluded that black publications do merit further study. This document also contains a list of the titles, addresses, and editors of the black magazines included in the study. (LL)
