    There are topics that speak to every reader. Engage, enjoy and continue to follow these writers who publish weekly or several days a week in newspapers and other media.

    William Monroe Trotter [1872-1934] was perhaps the rudest African-American journalist this nation has produced. The first African-American Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Harvard, Trotter was uncompromising. He attacked both racists and black accommodationists as editor of the Boston Guardian newspaper in the early 1900s.

    Trotter’s legacy of lone wolf protest inspired 18 African-American columnists in 1992 to establish the Trotter Group.
