A Statement From The Evening Look

We, The Evening Look, believe that Black Lives Matter. Black Lives have Always Mattered. The past few weeks’ events have illuminated and mobilized a movement that we as a staff have been part of. Individual members of our publication have donated money, signed petitions, emailed officials, and are doing work to educate ourselves on our power and privilege.

Though we are anonymous, we would like to be completely transparent — our current staff is all white. We feel that as a publication that exists to counter conservative narratives about what’s going on at college campuses and the world, we are thus not fully equipped to represent the diverse perspectives of students who are targeted by those we critique. To that end, we would like to invite any talented BIPOC folks in the MSU community who are interested in writing/designing/doing social media/etc with us to apply at our Contact page or email us at theeveninglook@gmail.com.

Here are some action items we encourage you to take part in:
