Fall 2020

We created our interactive “Worldmaking edition” in the spirit of radical revolution. We asked students and professors what carceral worldmaking and racial worldmaking looks like to them, and what place the electoral system, academic institutions and Black capitalism should have. This issue is dedicated to the Black community and our co-conspirators envisioning an equitable world.

Spring 2020

This season, we asked the Black community at Northwestern to submit their art, music and poetry to make a digital zine. Some pages have audio and video that you can play from the page, or links you can visit to view more of the artist’s work. Please enjoy our Spring 2020 Zine, and share it with your friends all summer long.

BlackBoard is proud to say that after a year of hard work and donations from our readers, we present our first winter issue: Elevation.

By Carson Brown, Rachelle Hampton and Princess-India Alexander.

“There’s never been a good or safe time in American history for black populations to protest against violence, racism, oppression.”

Attica: A 45-Year Riot

By Princess-India Alexander

“Attica was not an isolated moment. It was the result of a many surrounding issues and protests finally giving way to a single explosion.”

Moving Beyond the Private Prison

By Kali Robinson

“We need to dismantle and work on chipping away at the systems that condition us to call 911 when there’s too much noise in the neighborhood,” she said.

The Evolution of Black Music

By Tyra Triche

“Black music has “that thang…” something that you can’t really put your finger on, but you know it’s there.”

Through Time

A subversion and reimagination of the Victorian Era within an afrofuturistic landscape.
