Today the Nubian Message celebrates 25 years of publishing on the NC State campus. In the first issue (30 Nov. 1992) Editor-in-Chief Tony Williamson wrote that the "Nubian Message should and will be the media voice for African-Americans at N.C. State." He went on to say that "it will be a publication in which people can learn about different aspects of our culture, as well as find useful information about State's campus" (see Williamson's full article on the founding of the Nubian Message). Twenty-five years later this mission lives on.
The NCSU Libraries proudly preserves the legacy of the Nubian Message and makes early issues available online. We congratulate the Nubian Message on 25 years!
