‘Journal of Blacks in Higher Education’ to Cease Print Publication

The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, a quarterly publication that for 17 years has chronicled the African-American experience at American colleges and universities, has announced that its spring issue, just out to readers, will be its last in print. In an article that is part of a wealth of tributes to the late Theodore L. Cross, who founded the journal, its managing editor, Robert Bruce Slater, writes that “the publication would just not be the same without the contributions of Ted Cross.” Mr. Cross, who died on February 28 at age 86, was a civil-rights activist, astute businessman, provocative editor, and noted bird photographer, among many other things. Mr. Slater writes that the journal’s staff plans to continue publishing its weekly e-mail bulletin and its Web site.
