The Colored Citizen was established November 7, 1863 in Cincinnati. The newspaper was published by an association of black residents of Cincinnati, Louisville, Zanesville, St. Louis, Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis and other major cities of the Midwest. It was primarily a journal of general news and literature with an emphasis on news pertinent to African Americans. The editors considered the press as the most powerful means of refuting lies and slanders of critics of African Americans.
