Rap Line and Rap Update
In October of 1975, the BCC produced its first publication Rap Line, a newsletter which highlighted campus activities, regional activities, and short articles. The next month they rolled out Rap Update, a bulletin to keep students abreast of activities between issues of Rap Line. Over time Rap Line would expand its content to focus on social issues, poems, announcements, and interviews.
Odyssey was a magazine published by the BCC and Office of Minority Student Affairs (now Multicultural Student Affairs) as an outlet for disseminating information to students. Content included stories on university-sponsored programs and events; interest pieces on sports, beauty, and culture; and exposés on Black ISU faculty and staff.
