Colored News (Bowling Green Newspaper)

In 1954, the "Colored News" column in the Park City Daily News (Bowling Green, KY) was started about 40-50 years later than many of the colored news sections in Kentucky newspapers [source: A. Harvey, "Lifestyles have drasticaly changed over years," Park City Daily News, 10/26/2004, p.17, col.1, paragraph 8]. The column was located on an inner page of the newspaper and contained no more than a few brief paragraphs with announcements, death notices, meetings, and other events that were thought to be relavent to the Black community in Bowling Green. The colmn continued until at least 1965.  The "Colored News" column in issues of the Park City Daily News (1950s-60s) are available online within Google News Archive.
