Ohio Northern University Black Voices

A selection of holdings from the Ohio Northern University Archives that highlight Black voices found in our collections.

The Northern Review - Title Image




This page includes a selection of Northern Review (ONU's student newspaper since 1915) articles, letters to the editor, and editorials that document the voices of Black students, staff, and faculty from the ONU community. Their fist hand accounts can be both inspiring and difficult to read, and ultimately they all offer important insights into Ohio Northern and Black history. The digitized articles included here are not intended to represent the complete run of Black voices that have appeared in the newspaper. The Northern Review and other historic materials that document the history of ONU are publicly available though the ONU Archives located in Heterick Memorial Library.
