The People’s Advocate

The front page of The People's Advocate, a Black newspaper, bears the motto, "Principles, not men, but men as the representatives of principles." This edition of the weekly paper was published on February 14, 1880, in Washington, D.C. John Wesley Cromwell is identified on the top left of the page as the "Editor and Proprietor" of the newspaper, which was established in Alexandria in 1876 and, within two years, moved to Washington, D.C.
