This work examines both predominately black newspapers in general and four in particular - the ""Chicago Defender"", the ""Pittsburgh Courier"", the ""Black Dispatch"" (Oklahoma City), and the ""Jackson (Mississippi) Advocate"" - and their coverage of national events. The beginnings of the black press are detailed, focusing on how they reported the anti-slavery movement, the Civil War and the Reconstruction era. Their coverage of the migration of blacks to the industrial north in the early twentieth century and World War I are next examined, followed by the black press response to World War II and the civil rights movement. The survival techniques used by the editors, how some editors reacted when faced with threats of physical harm, and how the individual editorial policies affected the different newspapers are fully explored.
