African American Newspapers Forum
Publicizing Colored News Columns
Within the posts of this forum I have encouraged people to share when they discover a colored news column in a mainstream paper. I estimate that close to a dozen may have been discussed. My fear is based on the subject heading, they are probably hidden in plain sight.
A possible solution could be devising an appropriate standard post subject heading and cross posting the information in the States Forum--does that sound like a good idea? Would love to hear some other thoughts on the subject.
In addition to whatever is done within Afrigeneas, I decided to begin disseminating /documenting the discoveries within the FamilySearch Wiki which I consider a terrific research tool. I began with the column that Selma shared with us in response to my post Colored Columns in Local Papers.
A link to it is below.
