Description

During the riots, which started on November 10 after the election of a biracial city council and Fusionist mayor days earlier and lasted several days, members of the Democratic Party overthrew the local government and destroyed many Black businesses, including the offices of the Daily Record, the daily paper of the Black community in Wilmington. Over 2,000 Black citizens fled the town, turning a Black majority city into a white majority city. The newspaper clippings include items that react to the riots or information about the response and come from The New York Journal, the Baltimore Herald, the Raleigh Morning Times, the Wilmington Messenger, the Broad Ax (Salt Lake City, UT), Southern Christian Recorder (Atlanta, GA), The Pioneer Press (Martinsburg, GA), and the New York Herald.
