Issues of The Carolinian, from 1962 to 1964, have now been added to DigitalNC thanks to our partner, Olivia Raney Local History Library. The Carolinian is an active newspaper still published out of Raleigh, N.C., covering local, regional, and national stories that impact and interest the African American community at large.
Printed every Saturday, The Carolinan of the ’60s covered important topics that were often neglected in other local newspapers. Topics included issues such as integration, racially charged violence, and the movements of Malcolm X. They also celebrated the achievements of local citizens and community leaders in areas such as theater, arts, education, sports, and politics.
