Selected transcribed articles from the Richmond Planet (1890-1906, 1934). "The Planet was edited by John Mitchell and was one of the largest and most widely read black papers in Virginia. The Planet had a "Charlottesville correspondent" who reported on news from the African-American community that was of interest to Richmond readers. We selected articles from or about Charlottesville or Albemarle for inclusion in this collection." From the Virginia Center for Digital History and the Carter G. Woodson Institute of African and Afro-American Studies.
The Reflector, an African-American newspaper printed in Charlottesville from 1933-1935, is a source for understanding the lives of Charlottesville's African Americans during the Jim Crow period. From UVA's Virginia Center for Digital History.
Selected transcribed articles from The Reflector (1933-35). "Thomas J. Sellers edited and owned the Reflector, and we have only one surviving short run of it (a year and a half). Sellers writes about the local black community, the pain of segregation, and the success of black businesses, churches, and fraternal institutions. Sellers' perspective ranges across many national events, including the Scotsboro cases, the depression, and the New Deal." A project from the Virginia Center for Digital History and the Carter G. Woodson Institute of African and Afro-American Studies.
