Fagan's Book Receives an Honorable Mention

Benjamin Fagan’s book, The Black Newspaper and the Chosen Nation, was named an Honorable Mention for the Research Society of American Periodicals’ Book Prize. Here is what the Prize Committee said about his work: “The author’s ability to drill down into individual newspapers while demonstrating the ways that they are in conversation over several decades (and his attention to the overlapping characters whose lives intersect across the pages and within the printing rooms of the newspapers he examines) makes it an exciting book.”  Dr.  Benjamin Fagan is Assistant Professor of African American Literature & Culture, Early American Literature, and Cultures of Print in the Department of English. Congratulations, Ben!
