It is no secret that there is a profound lack of diversity in the media. Historically marginalized and oppressed voices still receive fewer opportunities than their white peers—in access, in leadership positions, and, significantly, in influencing the shape of public discourse in the United States.

We invite you to join our special fundraising campaign as we build on Boston Review's commitment to making race central to debate about justice, democracy, and citizenship.

Boston Review has always believed in making the free and open exchange of ideas accessible to everyone. To that end, we are thrilled to launch our new Black Voices in the Public Sphere fellowship, designed to prepare the next generation of Black journalists, editors, and publishers.

Our new fellowship is intended to address this problem by providing aspiring Black media professionals with training, mentorship, networking opportunities, and career development workshops. With the guidance of Boston Review editors and professional mentors, fellows will also develop projects to be published online or in print. This work is supported by an advisory board that includes Danielle Allen, Ann Marie Lipinski, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, and Brandon Terry.

Now is the time to fund the next generation of Black voices in the media.

With grants awarded by the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, we only have $50,000 left to fully fund this program for the next two years. To help reach our goal, your tax-deductible donation will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $25,000, by a generous BR board member through August 31—so please act now to double your impact. You can donate securely using this form. Alternatively, you can mail a check made out to Boston Critic, Inc. to the following address:

               Boston Review, PO Box 390568, Cambridge, MA 02139

To learn more about the program and get updates on the fellows and their projects, visit our Black Voices in the Public Sphere page. With your help, we can work to correct the long legacy of inequality in publishing.

Please join us in this mission today.
