This is the first issue of a journal produced by Black students at the College of the Holy Cross in order to address the need for a better understanding of the "Black Aesthetic." The works included in this issue use creative writing and art to express reflections on being Black, race, racism, racial relations, history, politics, religion and social issues in the United States.

This inaugural issue includes letters of endorsement from Rev. John E. Brooks, S.J, (President of the College) and Gilbert L. Taylor (Director of Human Relations at the College).
