Dave Campbell’s Texas Football has announced a full archive for subscribers. (This link is to a Facebook post.) “Every summer for the last 59 years football fans in Texas eagerly anticipate their copy of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine.

Now, thanks to a unique partnership with the nonPareil Institute of Plano, Texans will be able to find their names and their favorite team previews from 1960 to present day.” Subscriptions are $19.95 a year, I think.

The Retriever: “Chicory” and the forgotten voices of Black Baltimore. “In Nov. 1966, the first issue of ‘Chicory,’ written by everyday residents of Baltimore City, was published. Publishing original poetry with little to no editing, the magazine grew as a space for young people of color in the poorest neighborhoods of the city to express themselves. Working as a ‘vehicle for civic dialogue’ and fostering a community environment among the Black ghetto, ‘Chicory’ was for who [Mary] Rizzo described as ‘people who don’t necessarily like to write, but who have something to say.'”
