Over 50 issues of The Carolina Journal, also titled as The Journal, the student newspaper published by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, are now available on DigitalNC thanks to our partners at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. This upload spans about two years, from August 26, 1974 to May 1, 1976.
On August 22, 1975 the newspaper title switches from The Journal back to The Carolina Journal. Coinciding with the return of The Carolina Journal name is the departure of the art focused cover pages and creative layout that marked The Journal’s tenure. By the start of the school year in 1974, the newspaper layout slowly returned to a traditional format.
Along with updating students and the local community on campus developments, The Carolina Journal also frequently advertised notable guest lecturers. Father Daniel Berrigan, an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, and Faith Ringgold, an artist and Black feminist, both spoke at UNCC. In addition, UNCC sports were commonly reported on. The 49ers had particularly noteworthy basketball seasons in 1974 and 1975.
