Founded in 2012, the Bronzevillian Supplement is the electronic newsletter for the African American and African Studies Community Extension Center at The Ohio State University. The newsletter is mainly comprised of articles about the goings-on at the Community Extension Center, which is located in the historic Black neighborhood of Bronzeville. As the outreach arm of the Department of African American and African Studies at The Ohio State University, the Community Extension Center offers an array of programs and activities designed to enhance the life chances of Columbus’s residents, from college prep programs for high school students to leadership development for young professionals to computer literacy courses for senior citizens.
In addition to local news items one can also find within the pages of the Bronzevillian Supplement state, national, and international news items of interest. As part of the Community Extension Center’s effort to not only raise the consciousness of Columbus’s residents, but individuals around the world, I invite writers to feel free to submit their work to this exciting new publication. Our guidelines are firm. Articles should be no less than 400 words, but no more than 1000 words. Any and all works that feature African-descended peoples wherever they may be in the world are welcome. We are especially interested in timely pieces that fall squarely within the following categories: politics, business/finance, sports, culture and popular culture (music, film and fashion), international affairs, and news. Feel free to send along no more than 1 or 2 camera-ready photos with your work if so inclined.
Only polished submissions will be considered. All essays should be double-spaced, written in English, and sent as an attachment in Microsoft Word. The Bronzevillian Supplement is published monthly and all submissions should be sent no later than the last week of each month in order to be considered. Authors whose works are published and show great promise may be asked to become a regular writer for the newsletter at some point. There is no remuneration for having one’s work published, only the satisfaction that one is playing his or her part in keeping the world informed while at the same time heightening people’s level of consciousness.
