The Black Explosion has been in circulation since 1968, offering information and pertinent updates about campus affairs and student life, especially pertaining to the black community. Today, the newspaper strives to serve as a staple of black culture in the University of Maryland black community and connects news and culture. We strive to put out fresh and challenging information primarily but not exclusively for the black community. We seek to be a “Black Voice” for the campus. We continuously aim to bring attention to issues that affect the black campus community. We strive endlessly for consistency and quality whether it be meeting our deadlines, or producing quality photography and writing. Our primary dedication is to our work and the community we serve.
