Wayne A. Young contributes to Port Of Harlem's "Publisher's Point," "Features" and "Travel" departments.

Wayne A. Young was a disc jockey while studying business administration at Iowa State University. He completed hisgraduate degree in Marketing Communications at Roosevelt University in 1984.

Young started Port Of Harlem magazine in 1995 as a collectible item distributed at a Black memorabilia and collectible show. The first publication featured a collection of articles that he had written for publications ranging from the Washington Afro-American and Gary Post-Tribune newspapers to American Legacy and UpScale magazines.

He named the magazine after the world’s most famous Pan-African community to reflect the magazine’s inclusive, diverse and Pan-African. perspective. After publishingannually in black and white for the first four years and biannually for the following four, Port Of Harlem became a full-color, quarterly publication in November 2003.

To meet the challenges caused by changing reading habits, Port Of Harlem returned to being a biannual publication in November 2009, is now completely green, and released its first mobile friendly issue June 15, 2015.
