UMOJA Magazine is the oldest African-American owned magazine in Wisconsin. For nearly 30-years, UMOJA Magazine has provided Dane County and the state, positive news about the Black community with beautifully illustrated covers, commissioned by local and national African-American artists. In 2018 UMOJA Magazine was acquired from its long-term owner, Milele Chikasa Anana, by UMOJA Magazine-Madison, Inc., a non-profit organization created by the Urban League of Dane County.
UMOJA Magazine has thousands of African-American readers from all walks of life. In addition to its loyal readership in the Black community, UMOJA is also read by thousands of other diverse readers. UMOJA is distributed to schools, colleges and universities, businesses, community-based organizations, churches, and offices throughout Dane County and beyond.
The UMOJA office is housed in the Urban LeagueÛªs facilities and is fully staffed. The magazine is published monthly, except for August. Articles, photos, and short-stories are always welcome and may be published at the publisherÛªs discretion. If you like to get involved with UMOJA, there are volunteer opportunities available to take photos, write stories and help out with office projects.
UMOJA Magazine is published both in print and online. If youÛªre interested in reaching the African-American community there is no better way to do it than through UMOJA.
