Ethel, so glad to see you active on Afrigeneas! I know you have been saddled with some challenges over the past year or two. I appreciate you weighing in on this new forum, and hope you will continue to do so.
The newspaper you are referring to was actually not a black newspaper, but one that contained a column for news of the African American community in Roslyn. It was one of the best columns I have ever come across for genealogical information--very rich.
The black paper in the region, at least the one that had surviving issues, was the Seattle Republican. I believe it has been placed online as part of the digitization project with the Library of Congress and is on the Chronicling America website. I have found some terrific information in it on Roslynites; some still in the community, but many who had moved to Seattle, Tacoma, and other places.
