It continued to do that through the early 1960's with a membership that included numerous African newspapers. 

This program will chart the establishment and operation of this news service at a time when separate Black institutions served their people behind the veil of race. It will include several selections of music that highlight what the ANP was about. The Associated Negro Press remains to this day "The best kept secret in American journalism history."

Presented by:

Dr Lawrence Hogan, emeritus professor of history at Union County College. He is recognized nationally as an expert on the history of Black baseball. He is the author of several books including "A Black National News Service: The Associated Negro Press and Claude Barnett," as well as "The Forgotten History of African American Baseball."  He is executive producer of the documentary, "Before You Can Say Jackie Robinson: Black Baseball in America in the Era of the Color Line."
