The advertisement section in the
Afro-American was a place where everyone in the community
could showcase their goods and services. If a person were looking
for a store where they could purchase items for the home, such as coal
and wood, they could find it it the Afro-American. One could
also find out when and where religious and social events would take place.
The advertisement section of the Afro-American was and remains
an excellent place to locate businesses and events pertaining to
the African American community. The following advertisements exemplify
the type of businesses and organizations that used the pages of the Afro
to showcase their services.
