Black Journalism Students Start Up New Magazine at the University of Florida

Many black students at the University of Florida have boycotted the weekly student newspaper, the Florida Alligator, because of a controversial cartoon depicting Condoleezza Rice and Kanye West. As a result, a new magazine will be launched this coming January at the University of Florida. Blacklisted, founded by a group of African-American journalism students at the university, will publish five times each academic year.

Editorial features will target all minority groups at the university. Advertisers will be sought to fund the new venture.
