The Negro World

The Negro world (St. Paul, Minn.; Minneapolis, Minn.) 1892-1900  Browse the title

The Negro World was a four-page, seven column newspaper published weekly from 1892 to 1900. Joseph Houser was editor and publisher, and had publishing offices in both Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Unlike many other African American newspapers of its time, the Negro World was Democratic in its politics. The paper featured frequent editorials harshly critical of the policies of Republican President William McKinley, of Republicanism in general, which it characterized as a “curse”, and of corporate trusts, which it called “imperial” business interests.
