I saw this recently on the Digital NC website, but thought today was a good day to share it –DigitalNC adds 700+ issues of Raleigh’s Carolinian newspaper: http://www.digitalnc.org/blog/digitalnc-adds-700-issues-of-raleighs-carolinian-newspaper/.
Issues of The Carolinian from 1945 to 1959 are now available on DigitalNC, after recently being transferred from a microfilm format to a digital one. This newspaper is still in print and based in Raleigh, North Carolina, where it shares news among its predominantly African American audience. The paper circulated in major cities throughout the state, and later issues were divided to showcase news from each locale, including Fayetteville, Charlotte, High Point, Goldsboro, Greenville, Rocky Mount and others. This paper is available thanks to our partner Olivia Raney Local History Library.
