New York Amsterdam News, 1922-1993

The digitized version of the New York Amsterdam News, one of the U.S.’s leading black newspapers and one of New York’s most influential black-owned institutions, is the latest addition to Penn’s growing menu of historical online newspapers. Search articles, advertisements, obituaries, cartoons, etc. documenting first-hand the major news and cultural topics of the 20th century from the perspective of African-Americans.

Penn also subscribes to Chicago Defender (1905-1975) and Pittsburgh Courrier (1911-2002), two other prominent black historical papers brought to us by ProQuest Historical Newspapers.

As usual, access these titles from your favorite Library homepage.
