One of the grad students working with Queer Newark is trying to track down information on a bi-monthly magazine from the mid-nineties called New Jersey’s Gay Black Woman for her master’s thesis. Does anyone have any information or recollection of this magazine?
Below are photos of the cover and the publisher’s information. The publisher is listed as New Jersey Womyn in Newark by Karin A. Kinsey.
Any information would be greatly appreciated! Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stumbled across this extremely adorable photo from 1940 of two cats in Newark drinking their milk through straws, while doing archival research on the city’s nightclub history.
The caption reads — “GOOD MANNERS: These two mouse destroyers, pets of patrons of a Newark night club have better manners than some of the customers. Instead of lapping up milk in the usual tabby fashion they insist on straws and that’s the only way they’ll take the liquid nourishment.” – Newark Star Ledger, January, 1940.
