We would like to congratulate Naomi Oppenheim as she has her first journal article published.  It is entitled ‘Popular History in the Black British Press: Edward Scobie’s Tropic and Flamingo, 1960-64’. It is based on research undertaken at the British Library as part of Naomi’s Collaborative Doctoral Partnership which explores Caribbean diaspora publishing. The article uses Edward Scobie, the Dominican-born journalist and historian, as an entry point for recovering histories of the Black British press and popular history. By focusing on popular magazine histories, this research challenges us to think about what counts as historical scholarship and where it is produced.
