In Response To: Re: The Cleveland Gazette ()
These are super examples of what can be uncovered in black newspapers, and the GREAT news is that the simple stories such as the one from Benton Harbor were deemed newsworthy and appeared in these papers. That is because of the social columns, and from Edith's posting we can see that even the Indy Recorder, which focused on Indiana news, strayed over the border from time to time.
I have seen Benton Harbor columns often in both the Chicago Defender and The Freeman.
Thanks for posting Edith!
