The Book " Whither Black Press" seems to be an excellent documentary, rather than an untold story, of which I expected.
The story line started as an interesting experience, without the "citations" my thoughts of Clint's literary artistic talents where wasted on a commercial minded joint venture...like so many Literary Artist do. I say this to you and your editor's; "the black press is not Whitering away is just at a linguistic impasse, the black culture has to catch up with the New Millenniums language styles, which will enlighten the readers of Black Journalism. The book tells of successes and failures of the Black Press, and today, the folks that really would appreciate some solutions to the failed publications.
Sir; It's not about financial complexities, it's much about the Gut feelings of most black journalist, that are not allowed to tell the stories with the emotional input and grass-root languages.
