Black Strategy and Ideology in the Segregation Era: P.B. Young and the Norfolk Journal and Guide, 1910-1954

This article examines the evolution of P.B. Young's attitudes toward race relations and segregation during his years as editor of the Norfolk Journal and Guide, a leading African American newspaper. Topics include Young's adherence to the philosophy of Booker T. Washington, as well as Young's relationship with the NAACP, his transition from Republican to Democrat, and his attitude toward black soldiers' involvement in World War I and II, which often contrasted starkly with positions held by many other black leaders of his era.
