Ten years ago in the Bay View

A grant to post Bay View archives has been approved by the San Francisco Foundation! Sfbayview.com currently holds only the past 10 years of Bay View stories, but we were reporting and making lots of history before that.

For a taste of what’s coming, check this story out from 10 years ago, in 2009: Black Power wins a Black president and a white cop charged with murder.

All of us who have internet access can read the San Francisco Bay View National Black Newspaper online, and we’re proud of our website and urge you to share it far and wide. But for tens of thousands of our readers, the monthly print edition is essential. A long time reader in prison writes: “You were there for us when the torture got us down. You encouraged us, nurtured our movement and struggled to free us. Please don’t give up. We won’t.”

Bay View Prisoners’ Subscription Fund

Specify the Prisoners’ Subscription Fund if you’d like your funds to cover the cost of mailing the paper to prisoners. Thousands are already on the mailing list – they write to us daily with messages like “The Bay View keeps me alive” – and hundreds more write to request a subscription.
