ProQuest to Digitize Historical African-American Newspaper

ProQuest Information and Learning announced an expanded agreement with publisher Real Times, Inc. to digitize historical content from The Chicago Defender, an influential national African-American newspaper. When the database is complete, it will be available online from 1909 through 1975 both in ProQuest’s forthcoming Black Studies Center and in ProQuest Historical Newspapers. The database will launch later this year.
