Title:Charlotta Bass at her desk in the office of the California Eagle, circa 1931/1940, Los Angeles
Date:1931-1940
Description:

Photograph of Charlotta Bass sitting at her desk in the offices of the California Eagle, a weekly newspaper covering Los Angeles' African-American community. The newspaper was published for more than 85 years, and its editorial offices were located at various places along or near Central Avenue, the main thoroughfare of the city's African-American community. Bass (then Charlotta Spears) came to Los Angeles in 1910 and took a job selling advertising for the newspaper. In 1912, upon the death of the newspaper's founder and editor, John J. Neimore, Bass became managing editor and publisher of the newspaper. In 1914, she married Joseph Blackburn Bass, the Eagle's editor-in-chief. She remained the paper's owner until she retired in 1951.
