As we enter the tenth year of publishing, we hold fast to our mission of showcasing the African American community in a positive light. It has always been our fundamental belief that there needs to be a counterbalance to the images and depictions so often shown of African Americans in the mainstream media.
Now, as we go into our tenth year, we will enhance your “views” by providing color to our entire publication. Going forward, when we show you, we will show you in “living color”. Not just black and white, but every color in the rainbow.
We live in a time where almost everyone is carrying a camera and color images are at everyone’s fingertips; we felt that color should be in your fingertips as you read our pages.
To those who submit photographs that accompany a news release, your pictures will look the best if you send larger files. The small files that will work on social media get distorted when we try to print them large enough to be impactful. Make sure your files are at least 1MB.
To our advertisers, an article in Scientific American stated “researchers learned that subjects were more likely to recall the color version of an image than the same scene in black and white.” Your color ad is going to work harder for you than a black and white ad. As we celebrate 10 years, we are giving you the color for free.
We trust you will enjoy the upgrade. We thank you for your continued support.
