We look at the holiday season (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Watchnight and Kwanzaa). Obviously, slavery was a horrible existence for the enslaved, but the holiday season was a “less horrible” time for them. Also, we present our version of the top 10 Black Christmas movies of all time, a Kwanzaa flier and we introduce a new feature, Talkin' Loud where we highlight notable speeches from historical African-Americans. This month, our Talkin' Loud legend is Rep. Barbara Jordan Mais
Each month, Black By Degrees digital magazine will feature a theme of interest or relevance to the African-American community and will also include input from readers on a variety of topics. Each issue will be a place for us to talk about the things we like to talk about when it’s just us doing the talking.
But, we are not just a Black general interest magazine. We are also committed to build the Legacy Forward Scholarship Fund exclusively for Black undergraduate college students. Mais
