More on "large and in charge".

I have been able, over this holiday weekend, to catch up on some back issues of your magazine, specifically the January/February 2006 issue. I would like to make specific reference to your article "The Powers Behind Black Books" and ask a self-serving question: Why was Broadside Press not included or mentioned?

Last September, we celebrated our 40th anniversary as a publishing company; and we have done something not many black institutions have been able to do, as we are into our third ownership change. As we all know, many do not survive the first ownership change. Yet we are still doing business. Our original founder was the incomparable Dudley Randall.

I look forward--if and when you do your next article about this subject--to your at least remembering that Broadside Press is still in business.
