As Seen in the Appeal – St. Paul’s African American Business Community

Posted by: Ellen Terrell

The Western Appeal and the Appeal were noted African-American weekly newspapers published in St. Paul that covered news but also provided a way for African American businesses to advertise in the St. Paul area. The publication was celebrating their quarto-centennial (25th) anniversary and along with this souvenir edition, the paper held a celebration at the Junior Pioneer Hall that featured a number of speeches and musical performances.
