Publisher’s Statement

posted in: Publisher's Page | 1

Routes, A Guide to African-American Culture, after a 20 year hiatus, is being restarted for a third time. Routes‘ maiden issue was published 37 years ago. Its founders lusted to discover  African-American cultural offerings in and around New York City, and, to share those findings with similar “Lusters”. As I work through this process of republishing past issues, I am struck by the variety of their content. For better or worst, I, too, find myself reminiscing about the multitude of good and bad bygone moments. But it is very important to record that I am deeply grateful to the many people who have made it possible for Routes to leave a record of those who’ve given further body and contour to American culture.

At the moment, my goal is to publish the many issues of Routes that I have managed to find. I am missing many many issues. If anyone of  you out there have any of the missing issues, I would be very appreciative if you would contact me.

    Hi Ron I don’t know if you remember me, but I worked for you in, I believe, 1978/1979 when Eli and Shari were there and Townsend Brewster and Nelson George were on staff. I have a bunch of old magazines in a box in my basement. Do you know what issues/years you are missing? It was such fun to look at the old pictures of you on line. I hadn’t remembered Club Leviticus in years. We did have fun then. I’m so glad that you’ve restarted the magazine. How are you? You can reach me at….. All the best, Jill
