Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Senna traces the evolution of the black press from 1827 to the present with specific and detailed attention to its role in African Americans' struggle for civil rights. The book is a solid, academic contribution for students of history and journalism. Especially interesting are the chapters that deal with slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. Readers will recognize such names as John Brown, W.E.B. DuBois, T. Thomas Fortune, Frederick Douglass, Ada B. Wells, Carl Rowan, and John Harold Johnson. They will also be introduced to numerous other men and women who sought to provide and to promote the publishing ventures. The excerpts from the pioneer black papers give readers a good picture of those early writers, editors, and publishers and give examples of their passion for freedom and equality. Black-and-white photos add interest.-Valerie Childress, J.W. Holloway Middle School, Whitehouse, TX
