About Us

Who We Are

Founded by Duke undergraduate students, this publication seeks to promote political discourse, to provide a forum for current affairs, and to highlight the intersection of our cultural past and present. We aspire to collect stories that consist of diverse backgrounds, political stances, and opinions. The views and opinions expressed in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the position of Duke University.

Origin of Our Name

This culture magazine is named for Ida B. Wells, an African American journalist lauded for her investigations of the harrowing lynchings of African American men by white mobs at the turn of the nineteenth century. We pay homage to her name in the hopes of celebrating her legacy as a civil rights activist and dedication to revealing difficult truths. Through this magazine, we hope to embody Wells’ spirit of highlighting stories that were previously untold.
