Re: Publicizing Colored News Columns


I know of four (4) small town mainstream newspapers in Ohio that carried a colored news section from at least the 1930's up until the 1950's. The Piqua Daily Call, The Lima Daily News, The Zanesville Times Recorder and the Athens Messenger. These newspapers also usually referenced in their other articles persons of color as either (colored) or (Negro) for identification purposes.
