African American Newspapers Forum
Barlow Bend, Anyone?
Doing work in the Pittsburgh Courier in advance of an upcoming workshop and stumbled across a community called Barlow Bend, Alabama. Did a little investigating, but pretty much figured it was a teeny weeny place. Believe I found 3 social columns in the Courier.
The reach of black newspapers is far and wide!
FYI, I found one of the folks in the column, Athalee Rivers in the 1930 census.
