Title: National Reformer - February, 1839

Speaker or author: editor

Newspaper or publication: National Reformer (1838 - 1839)

The writer believes that the communication available through newspapers such as the Colored American helps hold together the African American community and is beneficial in the work towards elevation of the race. This freedom of expression must come from African Americans themselves since prejudice is so much a part of their lives that they feel they can't express themselves freely in any other way, even to those in the white community who wish to help.
