The library recently purchased a database of African newspapers covering the years 1800-1922. The collection includes newspapers from 21 countries across Africa covering “repercussions of the Atlantic slave trade, life under colonial rule and the results of the Berlin Conference to the emergence of Black journalism, the Zulu Wars and the rejection of Western imperialism.” Most of the papers are in English but other languages represented include Afrikaans, French, German, Malagasy, Portuguese, Sotho, Tswana, Xhosa, and Zulu.
