About This Journal
The term Griot refers to the story-tellers, musicians, and entertainers of West Africa.
The Griot is a student literary journal presenting fiction, poetry,essays, photographs, and art work which validates and welcomes the voices of our Black students. These endeavors not only represent a history of Blackness, but also the culturally diverse group of Black students here at Holy Cross. Given the vastness of their experiences as people of color and the richness of their ideas, this journal allows students to tell their stories and express themselves to the Holy Cross community while presenting themes that may be central and common to their experiences on campus.
Though intended to be an annual publication, The Griot ceased in 1999 after a two-volume run.
