The West's oldest African-American newspaper, published from 1879-1964. John James Neimore established it in Los Angeles as The California Owl in 1879, to ease black settlers' transition to the West. The paper evolved into one of the leading papers of the day while under the control of Charlotta A. Bass and her husband, Joe Bass. Charlotta Bass assumed control of The Owl following the death of Neimore in 1912, and renamed it The California Eagle.
