The Importance of Black Newspapers
Janis F. Kearney
Janis Kearney of Little Rock, former personal diarist to President Clinton, talks about her involvement with Daisy Bates, and the role of Black newspapers in the Civil Rights Movement. Of the newspapers she said, "Black newspapers probably had as much of a role in the Civil Rights struggle as anything because people learned about ... what was going on in our communities."
