ABENG was a weekly newspaper published published in Kingston, Jamaica. It started as a response to the protests movement that emerged after the banning of African-Guyanese historian Walter Rodney from the campus of the University of the West Indies, Mona. It was published from January to October 1969. [1] The ABENG was dedicated to the issues of Black and Caribbean consciousness awareness and was severely critical of both Jamaican political parties.[2]

The editors included George Beckford, Robert Hill, Rupert Lewis and Trevor Munroe.[1]
