Last week, I made passing reference to Black Enterprise magazine.
And, in the Bootleg Family's never-ending quest to present positive African-American media imagery to our son, I went and bought a three-year subscription. Yes, that should cancel out my West Coast music collection quite nicely. Anyways, I wrote a post similar to this one about a year ago, but it bears repeating:
Get your magazine subscriptions from eBay.
Three years of Black Enterprise = $2.95…total, Nicka!
Now, between the ages of 4 and 7, our son will be exposed to pictures of Black professionals from the imaginary lands of Atlanta, Washington DC aaaaand, I dunno…South Central Atlanta? Meanwhile, his parents will read stories on how African-Americans should better manage their money ("try to leave the dice game before it gets robbed") and the magazine's annual "100 Most Powerful Blacks" feature ("There's a NEW #1! Kidding, it's still Oprah.")
Happy Black History Month, y'all.
