Editorial Reviews

Fegan reads newspapers as a central vehicle for nineteenth-century black Americans' religious and political self-expression. . . . [I]n focusing on the ideological and religious values that propel the early black press, Fegan usefully builds on the work of scholars such as Frances Smith Foster, Carla Peterson, John Ernest, and Eric Gardner, who have emphasized the Afro-Protestant press's central role in nineteenth-century black print culture. . . . Fegan's book nimbly balances analysis of political and religious newspaper content alongside attention to each paper's historical context. - American Periodicals Review
