American Journalism: The Associated Negro Press

BHM Journalism PSP 022619

A story of persistence, creativity, and determination, the Associated Negro Press and its founder Claude Barnett delivered national and international news coverage that was remarkable for its substance and scope. Barnett, a Tuskegee Institute graduate, founded the ANP in 1919. Despite limited resources and numerous difficulties, the ANP ran for over forty years. Eventually, the black press was often referred to as “the greatest single power in the Negro race.” In this session, the story of the black press and it influence, then and now, will be discussed. Presented by Lawrence Hogan, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of History at Union County College. Please join us at the Fort Lee Public Library on Tuesday, February 26 at 7pm.
