The Cleveland State Vindicator was founded as a Black student newspaper in January 1970.


We are a student-run and contributor-based Arts & Culture magazine at Cleveland State University with the overarching themes of multiculturalism, social justice, and artistic expression.

Celebrating 50 years of seeking social justice on campus, in the community and on the Earth, our mission is to serve the students of CSU with accurate, opinionated and analytic journalistic content.

We are open to diverse opinions and viewpoints and strive to achieve our mission to amplify the voices of the students, especially marginalized groups in society.
