This volume shows how antebellum African-Americans used the newspaper as a means for translating their belief in black 'chosenness' into plans and programmes for black liberation. Benjamin Fagan shows how the early black press helped shape the relationship between black chosenness and the struggles for black equality in America, in the process transforming the very notion of a chosen American nation.
