San Francisco Bay View, national black newspaper dennounced repression in Guadaloupe.

The San Francisco Bay View National Black Newspaper, founded in 1976, is a communications network for the Black community worldwide, with its

  • website,, where hits have often exceeded 2 million a month, and
  • free print edition that’s distributed throughout the Bay Area and mailed to subscribers, including hundreds of prisoners all over the country.

Exciting, thought-provoking stories and commentary on the full range of Black trials and triumphs - covering the Black economy, politics, arts, education, history, current events, health, religion - and those of other communities, along with stunning color photography, fill the website and the pages of each paper - a paper so popular that it disappears within hours of hitting the stands.

The Bay View is the paper people read cover to cover, trust, tack up on bulletin boards, forward to friends and fellow activists around the world, keep for reference, discuss and act on every week. Bay View readers from the ivory tower to the grass roots are active and involved, leaders of today and tomorrow. Especially popular with young people, the Bay View is used by many educators in their classrooms.
