Abstract:

"The power and influence of the Black press have long been ignored, owing partly to the apathy of White America and partly to the loss of the actual papers; although a register for the period lists 575 Black papers, only a few remain. The material contained in this book is drawn from the collection of Black newspapers on microfilm located at the Schomburg Library of New York, one of the most exhaustive collections of such papers."--Publisher statement on back cover.

"The selections, presented here for the first time, represents a wealth of source material in Black history. Chosen from more than fifty newspapers from all over the country, they typify widely divergent points of view, ranging from considered arguments for Black colonization to impassioned pleas for political equality, from demands for the organization of Black workingmen to the piognant and bitter attempt of a wife to locate her newly freed husband."--Publisher statement on back cover.
