Newly Available: The Michigan Citizen
The Michigan Citizen was an African American-focused newspaper that was distributed in Detroit, Benton Harbor, and Highland Park from 1978-2014 and amassed a circulation of more than 56,000 people. The collection includes weekly issues, reporter notes, and a substantial photo collection.
A rare set of photographs captures the working life of two African American Civilian Conservation Corps camps during the Great Depression. But who are these men and what was life in the camps like? The Bentley needs your help in identifying these men, all of whom played a critical role in American history.
