      Thanks. I'd read the article. It appears in the same issue as one in which Ta-nehisi Coates was featured above the fold on the cover of the Arts section.  If I had the resources I would have attended the 50th Anniversary celebration.

       

      It is a good thing that the New York Times covered the milestone, check out The Chicago Crusader's coverge: https://chicagocrusader.com/hundreds-gather-to-celebrate-50th-anniversary-of-third-world-press-foundation/#comment-9705

      what if all the writers on aalbc submitted a written work, based on one theme, something short, whether prose/poetry... opinion/fiction and then submitted it as a book to third world publishing?  @Troy @Mel Hopkins
