National Advocate

The National advocate (Minneapolis, Minn.; St. Paul, Minn.) 1915-1924  Browse the title

Calling itself “The leading Negro newspaper in the Northwest,” the National Advocate began weekly publication in Minneapolis in 1915 with Richard B. Montgomery as the paper’s editor and publisher. Claiming to be "Republican in national politics, but loyal to the President and his administration," the National Advocate regularly endorsed a straight Republican ticket in local as well as national elections. Publication was suspended in 1922 while R.B. Montgomery was involved in an Oklahoma court case dealing with his alleged fraudulent use of the U.S. Mail. The National Advocate ceased publication August 22, 1924.
