The Pioneer Radio Society 1922

In honor of Black History Month, I found this photo in the Crisis Magazine.  A dapper group of Black men eager to learn about and experiment with technology.  I just love the radio set up, fascinating!  Check out the Crisis Magazine here.

  3. Cute fellas! Pretty innovative, too!

  4. What really kills me is the subscription fee to Crisis…
    one dollar & a half per year (haha) 😉

    Thanks for stopping by and for your interest! You know, most Black folks worked service jobs back then and could barely pay rent and buy food on the regular, let alone buy subscriptions to magazines and such. Plus, a dollar went a lot further back then. Crisis is still published today, you can get a one year subscription (6 issues) for $12 on (a 33% discount). Other Crisis subscriptions come along with an NAACP membership.
