From amcgee@netcom.com Mon Aug 16 07:23:47 1993 Date: Mon, 16 Aug 1993 04:07:00 -0700 (PDT) From: "Arthur R. McGee" SUBJECT: ANNOUNCEMENT/PRESS RELEASE

This is the general announcement/press release that details the various ways that someone may obtain the lists that I compile.

Please post this in the BULLETINS section of your BBS, in a higher level menu of your Gopher or system, or as file AFRICAN_ONLINE_RESOURCES.BLACK in an easy to find(and see) area at your FTP site.

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone and everyone who you think might be interested, but please do not post to any mailing lists or newsgroups, as you may end up duplicating my own dissemination efforts.

Take care. Art McGee [amcgee@netcom.com]

The latest versions of the following lists are now available:

* (1) Internet/BITnet mailing lists and news services that focus on African, African-American, African-Caribbean or African-Latin people, culture, and issues. (Up to date as of AUGUST 15, 1993)

* With these specifications:

* Subject: Body of Message: help quit

* Body of Message: help

* In either case a help file will be returned to you explaining how to use the FTPmail facility.

* The absolute latest versions of all the Black/African related lists are always available by sending email to or fingering the following:

* Warning: all of the lists will come back to you as one concatenated file.

* Remember: the above address is NOT for correspondence. If you want anything other than a list sent back to you, use the email addresses in my signature.

* The absolute latest versions of all the Black/African related lists are also always available on the BDPA BAC BBS(1-707-552-3314) and on the Data Bits Online BBS(1-213-295-6094) in the following files:
