What is inside Orpheé Noir?

Getting at the heart and soul of the Black Experience.
Filling the Void since Fall 2015

In the tradition of Black Newspapers, Orphée Noir, has emerged as a necessary voice of the Black Community at UVA and beyond. It is particularly important right now! Over the next few months, this periodical will be shaped by students to represent their experience in a unique and fitting way. The hope is to capture what it means to be Black on grounds and to consider this meaning within the larger context of Blackness.
