Nice information type the state of Georgia:

“The Digital Library of Georgia (DLG) is happy to announce that it has accomplished the digitization of two traditionally vital Georgia African American newspapers as a part of a Nationwide Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) grant from the Nationwide Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The digital photographs will probably be included within the Library of Congress’ newspaper web site: Chronicling America http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ and the DLG’s personal web site: Georgia Historic Newspapers (GHN), http://gahistoricnewspapers.galileo.usg.edu/. “

The newspapers embrace:

  • Savannah Tribune, 1886-1888  – Based in 1875, the Tribune, besides for 2 hiatuses, is likely one of the longest-running African American newspapers within the South. https://gahistoricnewspapers.galileo.usg.edu/lccn/sn84020323/
