New Negro Opinion Newspaper, January 18, 1934

About the Project

Established to protest discrimination in employment practices in stores doing business in black neighborhoods in Washington, DC, the New Negro Alliance also founded a weekly newspaper. The Negro Opinion educated the community about injustices in employment and fight for the rights of African American citizens. The Alliance published the paper between 1933 and 1937. After several successful protests, Alliance activities ended around 1941. Transcribe these fragile newspapers and discover how the Alliance reported on employment discrimination and their strategies used to fight the practice.
