Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This volume consists of twelve essays that address the history of black newspapers in the states that constituted the Confederacy. The intent of this collection, explains its editor, is to examine the southern black press "not only as an instrument of social change but as black enterprise, black crusade, and black artistic expression" (vii).
