Beverly Yes. This is Beverly Jenkins. They did exist as did the newspapers.
Andrea They did! Ida B. Wells-Barnett is a great example of an important Black female journalist. She covered lynchings of Black people in America long before most other journalists did, and her work brought these atrocities to the public's attention. She was an awesome woman!
