Connecticut Digital Newspaper Project: Introducing the Hartford Chronicle Family of African American Newspapers

Connecticut Digital Newspaper Project: Introducing the Hartford Chronicle Family of African American Newspapers. “The Connecticut Digital Newspaper Project is soon to digitize historical state African American weeklies from the World World II era. On March 26, 1949, Editor Ernie Durham and President George W. Goodman of the Hartford-based New England Bulletin, an African-American newspaper, declared that their new weekly would uphold ‘the crusade tradition’ of its predecessors. The Hartford Chronicle and the Connecticut Chronicle, they said, had contributed to six critical World War II-era civil rights victories for the African American community in Connecticut.”
