Summary This Web site is an online companion to American black journal, a television program that has aired for 30 years with the mission of increasing the availability and accessibility of media relating to African-American experiences in order to encourage greater involvement from Detroit citizens. ABJ programs represent a wide variety of African-American viewpoints on issues important to the city of Detroit, the state of Michigan, and the nation as whole, ranging from labor unrest in the automobile industry, to the urban civil disturbances in Detroit and across the nation riots of 1967, the emergence of outspoken African American political leaders, and the explosion of Motown music.
