Freedomâ€™s Journal Magazine, the modern-day journal inspired by the 1827 African American newspaper,of the same name, is a tribute to the courage and foresight of Samuel E. Cornish and John B. Russwurm, co-founders of Americaâ€™s Black Press. These early â€śfreedom fightersâ€ť desired to give African Americans of their day a vehicle to voice their thoughts, ideas and opinions declaring, â€ś[w]e wish to plead our own cause. Too long have others spoken for us. Too long has the public been deceived by misrepresentation of things which concern us dearly.â€ť These words hold as much truth today as they did when they were originally written.
For us, their dedication to creating a â€śmedium between brethren in different states [who] through its columns and expressions of sentiments on many interesting subjects which concern us, [would] be offered to the public; that plans which are apparently beneficial may be candidly discussed and properly weighedâ€ť became, in part, the impetus and vision for todayâ€™s magazine.
FJM pledges to continue their fight by looking forward to offering the latest in regional, national and international news, opinion, and editorial content with a biblical worldview. We are committed to conserve traditional African American values, provide a much needed platform for issues and concerns pursuant to ensuring our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and to preserve a legacy of black conservatism for generations to come.
Freedomâ€™s Journal Magazine is a publication of Wallace Multimedia Group, a media communications and technology company driven to â€śShaping the experiences and expressions of Christian faith to impact the worldâ€ť.
