A Conversation with Dr. Robyn Chandler

In 1969, following the residential dormitory sit-in at Mills House, Black students of the University of Massachusetts, at Amherst, produced the first issue of DRUM magazine as tribute to the Black literary experience.  The magazine went on to publish eighteen volumes before their last issue in 1988. Listen to Founder and Editor, Dr. Robyn Chandler, describe the political and social activity which DRUM was born in and the responsibilities of being a publisher at twenty years old.
