The National Capital Searchlight: A Monthly Journal Devoted to Education Among Colored People
[publisher not identified]
Volume 1, number 1
National Capital Searchlight appeared in Washington in 1901. African American education was de jure segregated in the South from the initiation of Jim Crow laws after Reconstruction until Brown v. Board Of Ed. Topeka Kansas in 1954. De facto segregation was much more prevalent in the North until the Civil Rights laws of 1965, and, regretfully, remains to the present day.
