Description

Voice of the Negro was published between 1904 and 1907 by clergyman John Bowen and journalist Jesse Max Barber, one of the founders of the radical Niagara Movement in 1905. It began publication in Atlanta but, after violent race riots there, was forced to move to Chicago in 1906. This is the first issue after its relocation. The Voice, with Colored American, became the most widely circulated Black magazines of their time.
