Title:Joseph Blackburn Bass and Leon H. Washington, circa 1930, Los Angeles
Date:1930
Description:

Photograph of Joseph Blackburn Bass, left, editor of the California Eagle, and Leon H. Washington, the newspaper's advertising manager. Bass and his wife, Charlotta, worked together to publish each weekly edition of their newspaper. Under their leadership, the newspaper crusaded against racism in D.W. Griffith's film, "Birth of a Nation," protested injustice in the military during World War I, and fought restrictive covenants that forced African-Americans and other minorities to live in segregated neighborhoods. Bass became ill in 1932, and died on Nov. 1, 1934. Charlotta continued to edit and publish the newpaper until 1951.
