Description:
Image of a head-and-shoulders sketch of John H. Deveaux. Deveaux, a native of Savannah, Georgia, was the first owner and editor of the Colored Tribune, which he founded in 1875. In 1878 he was forced to close the paper because white printers in the city refused to print it, but he reopened the publication, known today as the Savannah Tribune, in 1886.
