Title:John J. Neimore, founder and editor of the California Eagle, circa 1901/1910, Los Angeles
Date:1901-1910
Description:

Photograph of John J. Neimore, founder and editor of Los Angeles' oldest African-American newspaper. Neimore established a newspaper in 1879 to help newly-arrived African-Americans adapt to life in Los Angeles. The newspaper contained information about housing, jobs and news items relevant to the African-American community. One of the new arrivals was Charlotta Bass, who took a job selling subscriptions to the newspaper in 1910. By 1912, Neimore was in very poor health. In her autobiography, Bass recalled how Neimore called her to his bedside and made her promise to keep the newspaper alive. Bass took control of the newspaper upon Neimore's death and ran the California Eagle until she retired in 1951.
