This newspaper began as South Street Journal (SSJ) almost 25 years ago, on the south side of Chicago, and now its pages reach into the global marketplace. Yes. The WORD and the world are moving forward and journalism, in all of its glorious forms, still plays a pivotal role in how we describe our world, whether it is from a street corner in South Africa or from behind a terminal at NASA. What could be more gratifying, than to know that someone is Ghana, the UK or even Asia is reading a publication, that, decades ago featured those who walked the streets of Chicago, and cared about those blocks? There was probably no way that the publisher would have imagined that happening. But, it is happening now because Columbia University had archived SSJ from 1993 to 2007. You’ll find those copies listed under the Southside Chicago Documentation Project as a part of a social science research project on Black communities in Chicago. Under the direction of Publisher and Editor Ron Carter, South Street Journal (SSJ) served the south side Chicago community from 1993 to 2013. In 2007, SSJ served as the platform for the launching of Black Wall Street Chicago and in 2010 sponsored the 1st Black Wall Street National Convention. Recognizing that it was time to move into a new phase of development, designed to reach out to all Chicago communities with distribution on the city’s north, south and west sides, in addition to the south suburbs, CSJ was launched August 1, 2013.
