    in Education

    Are Magazines Living or Dying?


    Change is often a cause of most controversy within a society and one of the hardest things to accept, but failing to do you will find you will be left behind. It was only a few decades ago, a  magazine feature was almost entirely made up of words and any images appear just as an afterthought.

    Maybe it’s just part of The Change.  Join Young Media Critics host Juanita Richburg Seon and her young associate Erika Shoemaker as they take a look back through the history of the magazine on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 5 p.m. EST.  and talk about changes in the medium- magazine.
