An ancient proverb notes, “Each generation will reap what the former generation has sown.” Over the course of the 193 years of the Black Press of America, and the 80 years of the National Newspaper Publishers Association (20 and 4 generations, respectively), the fire for serving our communities that has burned so brightly, was only sustained by the embers of successive generations.
In our 15th entry in this series, we invite representatives of the next generation of the Black Press to talk about their vision for the future. How much will change? How much will remain the same? And, how much does each of them recognize, respect and honor the legacy of the generations that have come before them?
