Saint John, New Brunswick · 1903-1904
"Founded in 1903 by lawyer, author, and activist Abraham Beverley Walker (1851-1909), Neith: A Magazine of Literature, Science, Art, Philosophy, Jurisprudence, Criticism was a literary and cultural magazine published in Saint John, New Brunswick. It ran for five issues from 1903-1904 and is considered the first African-Canadian literary magazine. Walker edited and promoted the magazine and contributed more than one hundred short essays, editorials, and reviews to its pages during its short run. Providing a forum for Black writers within and beyond the Atlantic region, Neith advanced a programme of civil rights at a time when no similar vehicle for anti-racist discourse existed in Canada." — Billy Johnson
