Uhurú Magazine: The Revival of a Voice

Author
  • Tiona Fowler (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Uhurú Magazine began as a bi-weekly newsletter focused on black culture and politics. In spring 1998, Black Student Alliance and an organization called Renaissance transformed the newsletter into Uhuni Magazine; it existed until spring 2000. In fall 2003, three students stepped up to revive the magazine. Uhuni Magazines mission is FREEDOM; freedom of speech, of mind, of stereotypes, and ignorance. It is the future multi-ethnic publication on the ISU campus that will allot a voice to the opinions and points of view of the different ethnic groups on campus. It will provide a medium through which news and political issues can be addressed and will present how national events directly and indirectly affect us by creating stereotypes, which are passed on through generations, thus def eating diversification.
