Dr Boyce Watkins: Ebony Magazine can't pay it's writers and I predict they're going bankrupt
It wasn't hard to predict Ebony's demise unfortunately
Its too bad that Ebony my go bankrupt. When you have publications such as Ebony, Essence, & Black Enterprise just to name a few, start falling by the wayside, we as a community (and this should have started a long time ago) need to find ways to keep these media companies going. No one will tell our stories the way that they need to be told. I hope and pray that Ebony, Essence, Black Enterprise, Jet, et al will find ways to stay around for decades to come.
It's such a shame that our media companies cannot hold on to their properties. BET, Ebony, and other companies sold out to monopolies that could care less about African American subscribers. Such a travesty. Money over community is a sell-out.
Thank you Dr Watkins for getting this information out to the community. As a long time subscriber to Ebony over the past 7 months my print editions of ebony have been either late or not arriving. Customer service non existing. I can stop wondering whats going on I have the answer.
