The student newspaper Black Rap began publication in the fall of 1968, following the assassinations of Dr. King in April and of Robert Kennedy in June and the confrontation at the Chicago Democratic Convention in August. Black Rap was launched by Lake Forest College African-American students as they responded to the threats and challenges as well as to the gains they had made in the earlier 1960s Civil Rights Movement. The periodical was most regular in the early years and then continued into the 1980s on an occasional basis.
In 2020, Black Rap began publishing once again with a new generation of students.
