Like all of the Black newspapers before us that are rooted in the “true” spirit of advocacy” “we will not be moved.” From the first issue of The Freedom’s Journal started by John B. Russwurm and Samuel Cornish on March 16, 1827 in New York City, to a newspaper born from the son of a slave in Liberty County, Florida, Riley Moore’s The Colored Bulletin (1938) was the first Black newspaper in Broward County, Florida, in the succession of “Soldiers Without a Sword, engrained with the life blood for freedom the Black Press lives. What was started by Levi Henry, Jr. and his late wife, Yvonne in February of 1971, the Westside Gazette continues to be a Standard Bearer for truth, justice and a voice for its readers. And the soldiers march on!
Happy 47th Birthday to the Westside Gazette!
