The Things You Can Find in Black Papers
This news column from the Freeman dated July 8, 1905, is a glowing example of the wide ranging diversity you can find as a researcher in Black newspaper community columns. If one reads through it, you will see how it wonderfully provides the reader with the "connectivity" of Indianapolis with many other communities by way of reporting on former residents and people passing through for various reasons, both social and business. In some cases you learn relationships, the names of a number of community organizations, the activities taking place-including birth announcements, and more!
