Today, Monday 4 February 2008, marks an important day in the history of the black press as Keith Boykin launches The Daily Voice newspaper.
In its debut issue, prominent black women take center stage.
Boykin says in his final blog posting "The Daily Voice is not a gay site. Or a straight site. But rather it's a place for all of us to come together in the African American community. Whether you're male or female, gay or straight, young or old, Republican or Democrat, we want to hear your voices. I see this as a space where Rev. Jesse Jackson may contribute one day and then Clarence Thomas the next. (And you all know what I think about Clarence Thomas.)".
Hallelujah! This, indeed, is a most important day in the history of black press.
