Scope: Alexander's Magazine is an Afro-American magazine. It was published from 1905-1909 in Boston. It was "devoted to the spreading of reliable information concerning the operation of educational institutions in the South, the moral, intellectual, commercial & industrial improvement of the Negro race in the United States."
It provides an excellent background history of the black experience in America. While neither radical nor an advocate of accommodation, it commented upon national politics which concerned the race and served as a vehicle of racial pride.
It is part of the Negro periodicals in the United States series.
There is no known index or guide to the magazine.
