Born a slave before the Civil War, Daniel Rudd was a Catholic journalist, who was the first black man to own a national newspaper of any kind. Tom and Noëlle Crowe reveal how his newspaper and activism both promoted the civil rights of blacks and evangelized the benefits of Catholicism to the black community in the 19th century.
