Art History Professor Eddie Chambers Curates Black Press Collection

Friend of the University of Texas Libraries and Art History Professor Eddie Chambers has curated a collection of publications for a display in the reading room at the Fine Arts Library.

Chambers’ exhibit — “Recognizing the History of Black Magazine Publishing in the US” — features selections from his personal collection that represent the burgeoning of an independent press which spoke to the experience of African Americans in the late 20th Century, and includes examples from the period of the publications EbonyEbony Jr!JetBlack WorldNegro Digest and Freedomways.

The exhibit is on display during regular Fine Arts Library hours through the fall semester.
