The 1990s. African Americans achieved more influence--and faced more explosive issues--than ever before. One word captured those times. One magazine expressed them. Emerge .

In those ten years, with an impressive circulation of 170,000 and more than forty national awards to its credit, Emerge became a serious part of the American mainstream. Time hailed its "uncompromising voice." The Washington Post declared that Emerge "gets better with each issue." Then, after nearly a decade, Emerge magazine closed its doors. Now, for the first time, here's a collection of the finest articles from a publication that changed the face of African American news.

From the Clarence Thomas nomination to the Bill Clinton impeachment . . . from the life of Louis Farrakhan to the death of Betty Shabazz . . . from reparations for slavery to the rise of blacks on Wall Street . . . the most important people, topics, and turning points of this remarkable period are featured in incisive articles by first-rate writers.

Emerge may have ended with the millennium, but--as this incomparable volume proves--the quality of its coverage is still unequaled, the extent of its impact still emerging. Stirring tribute, uncanny time capsule, riveting read--The Best of Emerge Magazine is also the best of American journalism.
