The Liberator: Digitization Makes Historic Black Newspaper Available to the Public
The Liberator was an early 20th-century newspaper that chronicled the emerging Black population in Los Angeles under the leadership of Jefferson Lewis Edmonds. His descendants through the J.L. Edmonds Project, the Los Angeles Public Library, and the California Revealed project have partnered to make this influential publication widely available through digitization.
The exhibit The Liberator: Chronicling Black Los Angeles, 1900–1914 opened last week at the California African American Museum. What better way to see the exhibit than through a ► CAAM Curatorial Walkthrough on April 19!
