CSWAC's 'zine, 1995 - 1997
This publication is like a step back in time to the period when CSWAC was founded. The six issues of our original QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER (actually more of a 'zine) document the rising white anti-racist consciousness of the mid-1990s. Indeed, the QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER was an early effort to promote that consciousness. The newsletter failed to achieve a subscriber base that could sistain its continued publication. But it stands as a marker of a time when the topics of whiteness and white anti-racist activism were emerging on the national scene.
The newletters provided here for public viewing are PDFs of the original source documents. Issue 1 is a scanned document. Issues 2 through 6 are produced directly from the source documents. The newsletter itself was a printed publication snail-mailed to a subscriber list. It consisted of 11" x 17" double-sided pages folded and stapled to give an 8.5" x 11" document of either 8 pages (Issue 1) or 16 pages (Issues 2 through 6). The printing was black and white. The PDFs are very close reporductions but in some cases the images are less sharp, the outside margins are slightly different, and color images used in the source document show as color whereas in the original print document they showed as grayscale.
