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.

Abstract:
Prior to the 1897 election of activist congressman George Henry White, fewer than a dozen African-Americans had served as postmasters in North Carolina. After his election, White pushed for a significant increase in black postmasters with a high of 34 being appointed by Republican leadership. The rise of white supremacy led to the quick downfall of black postmasters by 1900 when only three were left in North Carolina.
