Afrocentric: A Student Black Empowerment Magazine

Recent events at Central High School have unveiled the underlying racism in our very own school community, making us feel unheard. So, a few of us came together and created Central’s very first Black empowerment magazine, Afrocentric. Afrocentric is a place to empower Black students, to share our voices, our words, our art, and our opinions. Too often the voices of Black people are stifled and overlooked, so this magazine is meant to amplify them.

We aim to uplift Black Central students and use this platform to cultivate an appreciation for Black talent, beauty, and activism every month of the year. This country was founded on a Eurocentric bias that portrays Black people as uneducated aggressors: it’s time that we rewrite this narrative and highlight the Afrocentric perspective. 

Furthermore, we see our magazine as one way to help advance the demands to improve Black student life at Central. You can read the demands here:

Your donation would help us to pay a Black owned printing company to print 1,750 copies of our first edition of Afrocentric in February and distribute them to Central students free of charge. It will also help us pay for our website and domain.
