Sepia

a legacy in photography

“Sepia magazine began in Fort Worth, Texas in 1947 as Negro Achievements, a magazine highlighting African American success articles and featuring reader-submitted true confessions stories. In 1951, two years after the death of its black founder, Horace J. Blackwell, Sepia found new leadership in white business mogul, George Levitan. With Levitan’s guidance, the magazine became the longest standing competitor to the more successful African American magazine, Ebony.”

— Mia L Anderson, Ph.D. Seeking a Place in the Sun, Sepia Magazine’s Endeavor for Quality Journalism and Place in the Negro Market, 1951-1982
