Negro World

Negro World

Negro World was a weekly newspaper, established in January 1918 in New York City, which served as the voice of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League, an organization founded by Marcus Garvey in 1914. For a nickel, readers received a front page editorial by Garvey, along with poetry and articles of international interest to people of African ancestry. Under the editorship of Amy Jacques Garvey, the paper featured a full page called, "Our Women and What They Think".

The paper had a distribution of upwards of five hundred thousand copies weekly at its peak, which included both subscribers and newspaper purchasers. Colonial rulers banned its sales and even possession in their territories. Distribution in foreign countries was conducted through black seamen who would smuggle the paper into such areas. It ceased publication in 1933.
