More on the Minnesota Regenerative Publishing Project
The Publishing Project’s Purpose was to plan how to consistently publish and distribute the stories of Minnesotans of African descent and their community knowledge on a consistent basis. A group of over 20 inter-generational consultants from throughout the community came together to discuss strategies to fulfill this purpose. One key idea was to create an institution that could support the publishing arts professions and industry within the African-American, Black or African heritage community in Minnesota. This support would include 1) accesing the funds from the State, foundations, other grant living organizations and social enterprising efforts to support publishing initiatives, 2) creating databases of works created by Blacks in Minnesota and of Black publishing professionals and 3) provide opportunities for publishing artist to enhance their skills and knowledge in their areas of interest.
