ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Norfolk Journal and Guide (1921-2003)

As a southern black newspaper, the Norfolk Journal and Guide did not have the same freedoms as northern black newspapers and thus did not aggressively or openly denounce social and racial injustices. Because of its more moderate position the Guide was able to procure advertisements from nationally owned white businesses. It was also the only black newspapers that provided on-the-scene, day-to-day coverage of the Scottsboro trial in the 1930s.
