George Henry White, Josephus Daniels, and the Showdown over Disenfranchisement, 1900


Abstract:
This article examines the political quarrel between North Carolina congressman George Henry White, the only black member of Congress in 1900, and Josephus Daniels, the editor of the Raleigh 'News and Observer.' White and Daniels feuded over White's efforts to promote racial equality and introduction of a federal anti-lynching law, all of which Daniels opposed. White did not run for reelection to the House of Representatives, retired from politics, and relocated to the North because of Daniels campaign against him through the newspaper.
