New African-American historical newspapers

Adding to Stanford's holdings of African-American newspapers in the ProQuest Historical Newspaper series, the library has recently acquired two new titles: The Los Angeles Sentinel (1934-2005) and the Pittsburgh Courier (1911-2002, excludes 1913-1921). Both newspapers are full-text searchable, as well as cross-searchable with other titles in the ProQuest Historical Newspapers line. Both are available on the library's databases and articles page.
