In 1999, Shorefront Journal, in its original printed form, was released to meet the need of sharing these significant stories to the general public. Published quarterly, this informal journal gave voice to the many historical moments throughout the Northern suburbs of Chicago.
The journal also gave exposure to more than 60 contributing writers — students, professors, historians alike — and became a venue for writers to share their stories and skills.
The journal has evolved into an online journal, providing faster information with a greater global reach. As always, the journal is open to contributing writers at all levels of experience who wish to share a story related to the Black experience in Chicago’s suburban North Shore. At the end of each calendar year, a printed volume collection will be available.
