Grapevine Magazine Exhibition Honors African-American History in Fresno

Following the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, African Americans gained access to professional and educational opportunities never before available. However, coverage of those success stories was largely ignored by traditional media outlets. That’s why six young friends in Fresno set out to create Grapevine Magazine , a publication that from 1969 to 1982 shared the life and style of prominent African Americans in the Valley. An exhibition at the Henry Madden Library at Fresno State honors the magazine. FM89’s Kathleen Schock visited the exhibit and spoke to the dean of the library, Del Hornbuckle, and magazine co-founder Cleo Johnson.
