Our Mission

Our primary dedication is to our work and the community we serve…

We strive to put out fresh and challenging information primarily, but not exclusively for the black community.

We strive to be a “black voice” for the campus.

We strive to bring attention to issues that affect the black campus community.

We strive endlessly for consistency and quality whether it be meeting our deadlines, or producing quality photography and writing.

For while the tale of how we suffer, and how we are delighted, and how we may triumph is never new, it always must be heard. There isn’t any other tale to tell, it’s the only light we’ve got in all this darkness.
— James Baldwin, Sonny's Blues
