Includes title index.

"This book contains a checklist of African American newspapers identified in more than one hundred resources. These sources include not only newspaper annual advertising directories, union lists, and finding aids, but also African American bibliographies, yearbooks, and several specifically African American newspaper sources. This book is not a union list of newspapers, which lists available issues (long runs or individual issues) of specific papers and the repositories that house them. Although the source codes may clues to repositories, the search for specific individual issues is left to the researcher. Listed within are 5,539 newspapers and assorted periodicals that have served Americans of African descent... These newspapers have been owned, published, edited, and/or read predominantly by African Americans and have been identified in forty-four states and the District of Columbia"--Introd.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
