NEW CAMPUS PUBLICATION HOPES TO BECOME VOICE FOR MINORITY STUDENTS
HOUSTON—Campus Progress, the youth organizing arm of the Center for American Progress, today announced Songhai News: The Black Collegiate Voice, a publication based at the University of Houston, as the most recent addition to the Campus Progress Student Publications Network. As a member of the network, Songhai News will receive journalism training from notable experts, as well as funding to increase the print quality and visual appeal of the publication.
Songhai News was founded with the hope of becoming the voice for minority students on campus, who have been underrepresented by other forms of campus media. "We fill the void left by the University-funded newspaper, the Daily Cougar" said Editor-in-Chief Kymberly Keeton. The latest issue of Songhai News is being distributed on campus now.
Currently, Campus Progress supports a growing and diverse network of 43 student progressive publications on 38 college campuses in 23 states and the District of Columbia with a combined circulation per issue above 85,000. Campus Progress, launched in February 2005 at the Center for American Progress, is a comprehensive effort to help young people make their voices heard on issues that matter.
Campus Progress runs a daily web magazine, CampusProgress.org; supports student publications on close to 50 campuses; supports local and national student issue campaigns; and has held over 350 event and film screenings.
