5,000 Issues of Black Newspaper Made Available Online by Library at IUPUI

The library at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis is posting issues of the Indianapolis Recorder online. More than 5,000 issues of the African-American newspaper over the span of 106 years is available in a searchable archive providing researchers with a valuable historical reference on blacks in Indiana’s capital city.

The archive is missing issues for the 1917-1925 period and from January to April 1932. The university is asking anyone in the community with any issues from these two periods to contact the library at 317-278-6709.
