This Thursday, The Afro-American Newspaper launches “Trends Magazine,” which it describes as a “full-color, glossy window to the lifestyle interests of the active and professional African American market in the greater Washington and Baltimore metropolitan areas.
The magazine will have an initial quarterly publication schedule, according to the weekly newspaper, which publishes separate editions in Baltimore and Washington.
“Trends” will be rack and stack distributed for free, and subscribers will receive copies in the newspaper.
“A big misconception about the African-American community is that we all live and think the same way. That couldn’t be further from the truth,” Afro Publisher John Oliver Jr. said in Monday’s announcement. “With such a long history of serving and being a part of the African-American community, we know first hand that African-Americans are just as diverse in their lifestyles as the world itself. Trends is dedicated to highlighting the many interests of African-American culture in this region.”
Afro American, which recently marked the 113th anniversary of its founding, distributes an estimated 18,000 copies in Baltimore and 14,000 in Washington.
Its Web site is www.afro.com.
