New York Amsterdam News

With $10 and a dream, James H. Anderson put out the first edition of the Amsterdam News on Dec. 4, 1909. It is named after the avenue Anderson once lived on in Manhattan, New York. Elinor Ruth Tatum is the publisher. The paper is known for its coverage of Malcolm X’s rise to prominence and crime epidemics in Harlem. (photo: New York Amsterdam News)
