African American Newspapers Forum
The World of Black Newspapers
Welcome to the launch of the African American Newspapers forum! A big thank you to Valencia and to others that played a role in the effort to make this forum a reality.
The black press in America was established nearly 200 years ago with an important mandate to educate and uplift its people. They fulfilled that mission and in the process have left us a rich legacy. And for genealogists, they have left us an incredibly rich source of material from which we can gain valuable clues and insight as we document the history of those individuals hanging on our family tree.
Now that WE have this forum on Afrigeneas, we also have a mandate. And it is to SHARE what we have found within the magnificent collection of African American newspapers out there. By doing so we can guide, inspire, and enlighten our people once again.
