The First Black Newspapers in New Orleans: Forum & Unveiling

Williams Research Center
410 Chartres St, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130
Make history with us! The Louisiana Creole Research Association and New Orleans Arts & Culture Coalition invite you to attend a forum and the unveiling of a new historic marker for these extraordinary newspapers. L’Union (1862-1864) was the South’s first Black newspaper and the New Orleans Tribune (1864-1869) was America’s first Black daily. Both journals decried racial injustice.

The L’Union & New Orleans Tribune marker will be the first in the French Quarter to recognize Black resistance and achievement! Let’s make this one of the biggest events of the New Orleans Tricentennial.

The marker unveiling will immediately follow the forum.

Free and open to the public.

With support from Union Pacific Railroad, Keep it 300, and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.
