Black Quotidian: Everyday History in African-American Newspapers

August 16, 1975


On August 16, 1975, the Pittsburgh Courier ran an advertisement for Dawn Magazine, a supplement that ran in dozens of black newspapers. The Afro-American newspapers introduced Dawn in 1973, noting “this four color supplement promises not only to add a new dimension to our involvement with news and advertisement but also is a symbol of strong black unity.”
