It's the Beginning of a New Era for the Bay View newspaper!

After over 16 years of providing Black and oppressed communities with quality news, the BayView newspaper has ceased printing weekly. At this time, our communities are faced with important questions like, "Who else in the 'progressive press' and in the Black press is going to consistently cover Haiti, Colombia, Brazil, El Salvador, France and Zimbabwe as well as East Oakland, Hunters Point, Hurricane Amerikkka, Chicago and New York?" POCC Minister of Information JR asks.

Come to the important community forum led by the Minister of Information JR and BayView publisher Willie Ratcliff on the life and future of the BayView newspaper – including plans to print the paper monthly – on Saturday, August 9th, at 7 p.m. at The Black New World, 836 Pine St. in West Oakland, to discuss this question as well as others.

After the forum, there will be a party to celebrate the life and legacy of this phenomenal paper, with DJs X1 from KPOO, Davey D from KPFA and Leydis from Havana, Cuba, spinnin' R&B and Hip Hop on the 1's and 2's.

A donation is requested, but not required. Money raised will benefit the SF BayView's Prison News Bureau.
