A digital history project about the Black press and the built environment
This project is curated by Dr. E. James West. It is part of a early career fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust, which focuses on the Black press and the built environment in Chicago.
This website expands this research beyond Chicago to explore the building history of the Black press throughout the United States. It includes photo-essays, interactive tours, and a range of other resources.
