The Black Press Sees Black People!

“We didn’t exist in the other papers. We weren’t born, we didn’t get married, we didn’t die, we didn’t fight in any wars, we didn’t contribute anything of significant achievement.. we were truly invisible.. unless we committed a crime. The Black Press! The Negro Press! We did get married! They showed us our babies being born! They showed us graduating! They showed our PhDs! ” – The Black Press, Soldiers Without Swords

Join me in studio with my guest, Harry Colbert Jr. , Managing Editor and Award-Winning Writer at Insight News, as we ruminate on the necessity of our beloved Black Press, from the home of The (Western) Appeal, the first Minnesota-published African American newspaper to gain national readership under the editorship of Frederick D. Parker!

Aluta Continua!
