About

The Black Press: Soldiers Without Swords is a powerful and engaging account of the pioneering Black newspapermen and women who gave voice to Black America. From facilitating the migration of Southern Blacks to northern cities to honoring Black soldiers in World War II, the Black press documented people who were otherwise ignored.
