Title:Joseph Blackburn Bass and Frederick Madison Roberts, circa 1921/1930, Los Angeles(?)
Date:1921-1930
Description:

Photograph of Joseph Blackburn Bass (left), editor-in-chief of the California Eagle and husband of Charlotta Bass, with Frederick Madison Roberts, the first African-American elected to the California Assembly. The men appear to be attending a convention of a fraternal organization because Bass is wearing a fez and a medallion. Roberts served in the California Assembly from 1919-1933. The California Eagle supported Roberts' candidacy and his legislative initiatives aimed at eliminating racial discrimination.
