Florence Spearing Randolph
(1866-1951) founded the State Federation of
Colored Women's Clubs in 1915. Her organizational work with the
Federation resulted in a strong and lasting organization. By 1927 when the
Federation's official newspaper first appeared, the organization was
celebrating its twelve years and recounting its history to that point.
This front page of the News displays a photo of President Randolph and an
article about the Federation's first annual meeting in 1916.
