This advertisement from an issue of the York College student-run Spirit Magazine, demonstrates the strong relationship between students at the college and the surrounding community. The ad announces a photography exhibition entitled "Ah-Haiti: Glimpses of Voodoo" at the Store Front Museum in Jamaica, Queens. The mission of the museum, which was founded in 1971 with the goal of promoting African-American culture, aligned closely with the aims of Spirit. A self-described "third world publication," the magazine typically focused on the needs and concerns of York's large black student population placing particular emphasis on heritage and tradition.
