Praise for African American Newspapers, 1827-1998

 Our guest blogger today is Reinette F. Jones, Librarian, Louis B. Nunn Center for Oral History, University of Kentucky

“Some days I wonder why it took so long for there to be a an online, full image, easily searchable database that covers 270+ African American newspapers, representing more than 150 years of the African American experience. I still hug the computer monitor and say, ‘Thank you, Readex, for taking the lead and providing African American Newspapers, 1827-1998.’ I love this collection! It has revolutionized the way I research entries for the Notable Kentucky African Americans Database (NKAA). I thank you, and thousands of NKAA users thank you.”
