Best of Emerge Magazine by George E. Curry, William Sandifer, Brenda L. Webber, Sylvester Monroe

The 1990s. African Americans achieved more influence–and faced more explosive issues–than ever before. One word captured those times. One magazine expressed them. Emerge.

In those ten years, with an impressive circulation of 170,000 and more than forty national awards to its credit, Emerge became a serious part of the American mainstream. Time hailed its “uncompromising voice.” The Washington Post declared that Emerge “gets better with each issue.” Then, after nearly a decade, Emerge magazine closed its doors. Now, for the first time, here’s a collection of the finest articles from a publication that changed the face of African American news.

From the Clarence Thomas nomination to the Bill Clinton impeachment . . . from the life of Louis Farrakhan to the death of Betty Shabazz . . . from reparations for slavery to the rise of blacks on Wall Street . . . the most important people, topics, and turning points of this remarkable period are featured in incisive articles by first-rate writers.

Emerge may have ended with the millennium, but–as this incomparable volume proves–the quality of its coverage is still unequaled, the extent of its impact still emerging. Stirring tribute, uncanny time capsule, riveting read–The Best of Emerge Magazine is also the best of American journalism.

I Was Really Caught Up Reading This Book. Before This Magazine Folded, A few Years Ago I Was A subscriber For Many Years. Personally, I feel That This Magazine Was One Of A Kind. There Were Many Things That I Loved About 'Emerge'. I Recall Reading A Lot Of The Stories That Were Written During The Time The That This Magazine Was In Publication. The Story That Touched Me Most Of All, Was 'Kembas Nightmare'. About The College Student Who Got Involved With A Drug Dealer &Ends Up Doing Time In Federal Prison. but after serving some time, in prison, She Was Pardon.Thanks For The Best Of Emerge' Thanks For The Memories...A Magazine Thats Gone, But Not Forgotten..
