The Lunar Visitor periodical was first published in 1852 in San Francisco, California by a formerly enslaved preacher, John Jamison (J.J.) Moore of the AME Zion Church (denomination)- church home of Harriet Tubman, the Paul Robeson Family, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, and other abolitionists.
In 2019, the Lunar Visitor brand was updated and modernized by the Moore family. In 2022 the family launched Lunar Visitor Radio during Black History via Live365.com. The work of Bishop Moore, Rev. Dr. Isaiah Moore, and their family continues on to modern-day.
When Bishop Moor published the Lunar Visitor in San Francisco in the 1850s, he gave it the mission statement: “To be devoted to the Moral, Intellectual, and Social Improvement of the Colored Race”, Today we just say "the race". It is through this mission that we self-determine to push ourselves and our families forward generationally, thinking 7 generations ahead.
