Initially launched as "African Drum" it was under Jim Bailey and Anthony Sampson in the early 1950s that "Drum", as Bailey had renamed the magazine, prospered. Aimed at and highlighting black urban culture, its influence and readership spread across the continent. The photographic side of "Drum" became increasingly important and drove its success. Among the photographers who made their names at the magazine were Bob Gosani and Peter Magubane.
