[ 8.] J. W. E. Bowen and J. Max Barber, (ed.s), Voice of the Negro: An Illustrated Monthly Magazine 2 (August 1905): 508-584.

Whole issue of an African American periodical containing articles, poetry, columns, editorials, and advertisements. The two feature articles in this issue include “The Biennial Election in Liberia” and “The Murderous Spirit of the Times.” Mr. Stone has marked an article entitled “Cleveland—A Representative American City” by Nahum Daniel Brascher, noting especially this passage. “Cleveland has a wide reputation for an element known as the ‘blue veins,’ a class of colored people ‘more light than dark’ who did not care to mingle with the ‘more dark than light.’”
