My name is Joi Wade and I am on a mission to document black student life at the University of Southern California.

After doing research on the history of African-American presses in the United States, I was inspired to begin my own blog on the black community at USC. Every day I meet amazing POC that are achieving wonderful accomplishments. On this blog, I hope to tell the stories of students, faculty, and alumni of color in the Trojan Family.

Please leave a comment on your favorite stories! I appreciate all feedback. You can also contact me if you or someone you know should be featured on the blog in the future.

Enjoy reading and stay exSCellent.
