"We didn't exist in the other papers. We were neither born, we didn't get married, we didn't die, we didn't fight in any wars, we never participated in anything of a scientific achievement. We were truly invisible unless we committed a crime. And in the black press, the negro press, we did get married. They showed us our babies when born. They showed us graduating. They showed our PhDs." -- Vernon Jarrett (b. 1917-06-19, d. 2004-05-23), in The Black Press: Soldiers Without Swords (1999)

[Today is Black Press Day, commemorating the publication of Freedom's Journal on this date in 1827.]
