A new print publication for Black men from Umber Publishing.




Tone is a new print magazine for forward-thinking Black men, a chance to highlight Black men’s nuance and explore the various tones of our perspective and lifestyle. This publication will be a place for Black men to flex, geek out, celebrate, vent, show vulnerability and feel supported through a visual dialogue and tactile experience of print.

Creating a platform for Black men to build community with one another based on shared experiences, critical thought, laughter and encouragement.




The Legacy Issue - September 2021


Our inaugural issue will be about Legacy. Experiences, knowledge, wealth and sometimes tangible objects passed down to one generation from the next.

This issue will unpack the ways in which Black men define legacy and participate in it, be it generational or cultural.

Tone is a part of UMBER Publishing
