African American Newspapers

In 1947, the Library of Congress in cooperation with the American Council of Learned Societies microfilmed the original print pages of over 150 African American newspapers published in the U.S. throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. This 12-reel microfilm collection brought together a selection of issues from these newspapers that were available in various libraries and state historical societies across the country. For some titles, only a single issue is extant or available, highlighting the uniqueness and significance of the collection.
