Reverend G.W. Longwood

This one comes from the collection of the New York Public Library. They also have the Monroe Broadcast newspaper from the mid 1930’s I would love to get my hands on, but they are not doing reproductions at this time. It is the earliest known African American newspaper in Monroe! Ah well.

This photo dates to 1901. I would love to know what church he pastored and what happened to him!

    I would say he was Baptist. Since he was trying to be a missionary he might not have been pastor of a church.
