BLAC Cover April 2021
We’re delivering eight pages of spring fashion, from florals to neon to denim. We also dive into the idea of inclusive fashion as the Black Lives Matter movement ushered in an era of reckoning felt across industries, fashion especially.
BLAC COVER March 2021
For our cover story, we ventured to Palmer Woods and to a midcentury home built in 1959, the first residential project by the late architect Irving Tobocman who designed 400 structures across the world before he died in 2017. Over the years, the current homeowners filled the space with works of art collected during their travels and pieces of sentimental significance.
BLAC 0221-Cover
We shout out just a few of the Black women that helped to usher Vice President Kamala Harris to the White House, and consider what her achievement means to the women of today and tomorrow.
In our January issue, we sit down for a Q&A with Michigan's first Black lieutenant governor Garlin Gilchrist. And we call on data and local therapists to stress the importance of addressing our mental health in an authentic way.
BLAC December 2020
To cap the year of the bizarre, we thought we’d recall the spirit of seasons past. By now, we’d be in full fashion swing with holiday parties, fundraising galas and charming stage shows to attend. There will be none of that, but we thought why not play dress up anyway with 13 pages of lavish looks?
Find a photo-heavy holiday entertaining spread complete with dolled-up local couples and bottles of bubbly. Plus, we’re talking COVID safety.
BLAC cover October 2020
COVID makes this election especially tricky, but within 13 pages of election coverage we look at mail-in voting and efforts to mitigate confusion and disruption to ensure a safe and accessible election.
As we look ahead to a new season (actually and metaphorically), let’s also peer back in time. Flip through our noticeably more robust issue and discover 12 pages of fall looks that evoke the funk and foxiness of the 1970s (Page 32). Was there a decade that better combined sophistication and cool?
In our August issue, with COVID still hanging around, we wonder whether Detroit bar culture will ever be the same. We also launch Part I of our three-part series "Evolution" by unpacking calls to defund the police.
As we consider where to next, let us also peer back in time and recall the landmark legislation, grassroots movements and pivotal moments in modern civil rights history. Also in our July issue, we sit down for a Q&A with BLAC's new publisher Billy Strawter Jr.
Like all of you, we’re trying to make sense of George Floyd’s killing and wade as gracefully as is possible through the aftermath. We asked writers, activists and elected officials to pen op-eds from their unique perches. And we take a look at how technology has kept us connected during quarantine, plus much more.
BLAC May 2020
BLAC is back and all digital again in May! Amid the constant doom and gloom, local COVID-19 survivors share their stories. And we answer the – rhetorical? – question about why this virus has been so ruthless to the Black community. Spoiler alert: because racism.
