About Us

We hope you’ll join us as we spotlight some very exceptional people who are making an impact on our world, many of whom might be new to you and to others.

AList Publications gained a fair amount of recognition in 2014 when it launched its unusual cyber-magazine which included video/audio and innovative clickable comic strips. Back then, their emphasis was on Food, Films, Art and Wine. Because of recent events, AList has switched its focus and is creating publications that are, shall we say, a tad more inspiring. Led by twenty-something college student, Bryce Brewer, the publication is finding solid ground with an array of subjects, starting off its publication with a video/audio magazine named Amazing Black Lives. When I caught up with Brewer, he made it a point to tell me that his magazine is not a political commentary, although he realizes that, in today’s political climate, people are liable to politicize just about everything. He clarifies, “We simply spotlight black people — past and present — who have done and are doing amazing things.” I have to say, when I saw his roster of life-changers, “amazing” is actually an understatement. Doctors, lawyers, scientists, authors, astronauts, chefs, financiers, professors, artists, inventors and entrepreneurs are a fraction of the phenomenal successes he showcases. Brewer insists that the message be clear inspiration, and that these people’s accomplishments speak for themselves. “We know that much of America is behind this historical acceptance movement, and we want to be a part of it, to help push it forward. Print, radio and internet TV are also on our agenda, and we want to interview anyone and everyone who is out there, helping, inspiring, making a positive difference,” he said.

The monthly Amazing Black Lives magazine will debut on August 28, 2020, to coincide with the 57th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his impactful and famous “I Have a Dream” speech. 

AList has plans to follow with other cyber-magazines that support people of color, having already secured the URL for Black and Brown Magazine.  Large, well-known companies that support equality and social justice will be featured in each issue of all of AList’s cyber-magazines, serving to guide readers to establishments which hold their best interests at heart. Once again, each will have an inspirational bent and the format will be video/audio. The magazines will be sent out to the email lists of the companies that are featured in the issues. Brewer continued, “This way, supportive businesses get a boost and so does AList. Everyone wins.” He passionately explained, “We are the children and grandchildren of Dr. King’s dream. Our mission is to help make his dream a reality. We are doing all we can to make sure that happens.”

Speaking for myself, I think Brewer and AList are off to a very good start.
