Chicago Defender

The Chicago Defender was started with 25 cents and had humble beginnings in the kitchen of Robert S. Abbott’s landlord in May 1905. The newspaper successfully urged Southern Blacks to migrate north between 1915 and 1925. Ronald E. Childs is the paper’s interim publisher.(Photo: Chicago Defender Newspaper,July 31, 1948)
