Digital Strose: ‘Colored American Magazine’


A new open-access project goes live: The Colored American magazine project “aims to make freely available reliably text-searchable, full-color reproductions of all extant unbound issues of this important periodical, with scholarly commentary on selected issues by Eurie Dahn, John Cullen Gruesser, Alisha Knight, JoAnn Pavletich, Brian Sweeney, and others.”
