Historical African American Newspapers

More than 65 historical African American newspapers are highlighted in a new research guide prepared by the Marist College Library. Most of the newspapers are freely available online, thanks to digitization projects undertaken by various libraries, historical societies, and Google. The guide arranges the newspapers by title, by six historical time periods, and by geographic area of coverage. The guide is available at http://libguides.marist.edu/AfricanAmericanNews

A Rod Library Guide, Digitized African American History Sources, highlights many additional sources, organized by topic or historical period. The guide is available at http://guides.lib.uni.edu/african-american-history-digitized
