Cover Story: The Fort Hood Massacre and Islamophobia - The African World - By Bill Fletcher, Jr. - Executive Editor

Dear BC Reader,

Beginning last week began seeing some changes in BC. The content will remain, as always:

an independent weekly internet magazine dedicated to the movement for economic justice, social justice and peace, providing commentary, analysis and investigations on issues affecting African Americans and the African world.

Last week, we introduced our new BC Subscription plans, with several different subscription lengths and payment options from which to choose. We must return to subscription-based publishing in order to keep BC alive, although we also intend to continue Complimentary BC Subscriptions for low income readers, so that access to remains available to everyone. BC Subscription prices range from a low $39.95 one-time payment (or $3.95 over twelve payments) for a full year (at least 40 issues) to $4.95 for a one-month subscription. The Sign-Up Page gives all the details and BC Subscription plans.

For those of you who have continued your financial support through contributions to BC, we would be happy to create a BC Subscription for you at no additional charge. Please click here to let us know if you would like to convert your contributions to a BC Subscription.

And yet, especially with so many important issues facing us all today, the work of BC is more relevant and necessary than ever. We want to be there when you go to, and by asking everyone to pitch in, we will be.

Thank you for your past and future support, both financial and through your reader comments to us and to your friends and colleagues.
