The Black Community Newspapers collection offers a long-forgotten glimpse into the Black community of Flint. This first set, provided by the Flint Public Library, covers the end of World War II and the beginning of the Civil Rights Era. By providing access to these newspapers, the University of Michigan—Flint hopes to encourage authentic Black representation in local history. The second run of the Flint Spokesman in the 1970s will be added in the near future, covering Flint's urban renewal and the destruction of the historically Black St. John's and Southside neighborhoods.
