Indianapolis Freeman

The now defunct Indianapolis Freeman was the first illustrated African-American newspaper and featured political cartoons related to concerns of the Black communities of Indianapolis. It was first published on July 14, 1888, by Edward E. Cooper and because of competition from the Recorder, another local paper, it stopped its presses in 1926.
