More Issues of The Carolina Times Now Available on DigitalNC

The Carolina Times (Durham, N.C.), February 6, 1960

Issues of The Carolina Times from 1965 to 1972 are now available in the North Carolina Newspapers collection on DigitalNC. These join issues from 1937 to 1964 that were already accessible on DigitalNC.

The Carolina Times, a weekly paper based in Durham, was edited and published throughout this period by Louis Austin. The paper covered and addressed the African American community in Durham and throughout the state. Austin was a tireless crusader for racial equality and The Carolina Times was a forceful advocate for civil rights. The paper was an important voice for African Americans who were too often either misrepresented or ignored in other media outlets.

These issues were digitized and published at the suggestion of the Durham County Library.
