'American Legacy' magazine returns to regular publication schedule
(November 29, 2011) Rodney J.Reynolds, founder, publisher and CEO of RJR Communications, Inc. announced today that American Legacy Magazine is gearing up to resume its regular quarterly publication schedule beginning in February 2012.
“We are excited about our plans to resume publication in 2012 and continue our tradition of providing our readers with an excellent editorial product that highlights the untold stories of our rich history, culture and legacy,” says Reynolds. “While we delayed publication for a short period of time to raise new investment capital, we are ecstatic to be positioning ourselves to be an even stronger company and publication than before.”
Entering its 17th year, American Legacy remains the only national magazine with editorial content focusing exclusively on African-American history and culture. In addition, the American Legacy brand includes “The Know Your History Board Game,” the family game about African-American history and culture; The American Legacy Black History Mobile Museum, an 18-wheel mobile truckblack historyexhibit; "The American Legacy Challenge," a trivia competition for high school students; and, a “Black History Curriculum Guide,” -- a resource for educators seeking to integrate multicultural studies into their curriculum in the classroom.
While the magazine delayed publication for a short period of time, Reynolds stressed that the current subscribers will not be affected and new subscribers should join now to take advantage of special discounts. Readers can also subscribe to the online version of the magazine at www.zinio.com or by visiting www.americanlegacymag.com.
Furthermore, the magazine’s signature events include: the annual Women of Strength and Courage Luncheon which has honored such notable women as Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, Myrlie Evers and Dorothy Height and the annual Men of Honor Awards which has also honored such notables as Earl Graves, Louis Gossett, Jr., Bill Russell, John Hope Franklin and Willie Mays.
Two of the most evolving components of the brand have been American Legacy’s Black History Mobile Museum and the Black History Curriculum Guide. The American Legacy Black History Mobile Museum has partnered with many sponsors since its launch in 2008 and continually tours the country. The Museum has been on exhibit at several Children’s Defense Fund’s Freedom Schools around the country and was featured as part of the national dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial at the Public Expo in August.
The brand’s educational products which include the board game, mobile museum, curriculum guide, American Legacy Challenge and a “student edition” of the magazine are currently being tested by a major educational publisher. In addition, the Magazine has developed a partnership with a major multinational travel company to create opportunities for African-American travelers to discover their cultural heritage through travel.
Published by RJR Communications, Inc. American Legacy is distributed nationwide to over 2.05 million readers through black churches and educational and cultural institutions and is also available on newsstands and through paid subscriptions.
