A Black National News Service
The Associated Negro Press and Claude Barnett
by Lawrence D. Hogan
In this revised and enlarged edition of his ground-breaking work, Professor Hogan presents the history of black journalism and the efforts of Claude Barnett, a graduate of Tuskegee Institute, to establish a national black news service. The Associated Negro Press quickly became the premier news service for America’s major black newspapers, the Chicago Defender, the Baltimore Afro-American, the Pittsburgh Courier and others.
