A Wordsmith's Future?
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v28 n13 p11-12 Aug 2011
At many HBCUs, students have invested time and energy into keeping their online and print publications afloat or reviving them from dormancy. However, at other schools the results are often less fruitful. "The Meter" at Tennessee State was an award-winning weekly just three years ago with a website that was updated frequently for breaking news. This year the print editions were monthly, and the website was down. In this article, the author argues that HBCUs must contend with limited resources and students who have little desire to write in the fight to keep print and digital media alive on campus.
