We are most grateful that our publisher, Wayne Young, made the Morgan State University (Baltimore) Spokesman student newspaper list of 50 Black people who they consider to be the most influential, from the Historically Black Morgan community and beyond. “The purpose of this list is to provide a wide range of Black leaders that everyone in the Morgan community should know about,” wrote journalist Aziah Siid.
Wayne Young, Publisher
Wayne Young, publisher and philanthropist, started publishing the Port Of Harlem magazine in 1995. He named the magazine after the world’s most famous pan-African community to reflect the magazine’s inclusive, diverse, and pan-African perspective. As a pan-African publication, Port Of Harlem magazine is the chief business supporter of the Port Of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership, a nonprofit that works with Gambians in the areas of education, community, and culture.
Here are additional Port Of Harlem and Port Of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership updates:
AmazonSmile Donations Up 110 Percent
The Port of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership (EIN: 83-0481127) has been issued a $13.24 donation from the AmazonSmile Foundation as a result of AmazonSmile program activity between October 1 and December 31, 2020. This is a 110 percent increase from the previous issuance where we received only $6.31. We only have six donors in this program.
The contributions represent .05 percent of the total purchase price of the six people who have made us their charity of choice. Amazon Smile is simply Amazon, but you get to choose a charity to receive 0.5% of every net Amazon purchase you make at no additional cost to you.
