The Black American Press and the New Manifest Destiny: The Waller Affair
Woods, Randall B.
Phylon, 38, 1, 24-34, Mar 77
In 1895 the United States and France became involved in a dispute concerning the arrest and imprisonment of one John L. Waller, a black American who dared to challenge French imperialism in Madagascar. The black press, perhaps at the height of its power and influence, reacted vigorously to Waller and his goals, and to the Cleveland administration's handling of the affair. (Author/JM)
