The highlight of the project is Black Student Magazine, published annually each February. Intended for all audiences, Black Student Magazine engages middle- and high-school students nationwide in celebrating Black culture while elevating and amplifying seldom-heard voices and viewpoints. By participating, students have the opportunity to improve their writing, research, and communication skills.

Leading up to the annual publication, participants engage with industry experts weekly and receive coaching in small groups from undergraduate students of journalism from the University of Oregon.

BSM Students Cover 60th Anniversary of the March on Washington

The 2024 issue’s cover story focuses on the 60th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s March on Washington, which took place this past August. In partnership with the Pulitzer Center and George Washington University, Black Student Magazine facilitated a youth field reporting workshop, where a dozen participating students from D.C.’s Calvin Coolidge and Jackson-Reed (formerly Woodrow Wilson) High Schools took to the Lincoln Memorial to interview subjects, capture photo and video content, and reflect on the historic event’s lasting impact.
