Charlotta Spears was born and raised in South Carolina in the tumultuous years following the Civil War. As a young woman, she fled to Rhode Island, searching for a life away from her Jim Crow childhood. In Providence, she got a job selling ads for a black-owned newspaper, where she began to learn about the world of publishing.
In 1910, Charlotta moved to Los Angeles for her health. She quickly got a job selling subscriptions for The California Owl, a local newspaper catering to Los Angeles’s black citizens. Before long, she proved herself more than capable at anything she tried, and the newspaper’s owner willed the newspaper and printing business to her upon his death.
Charlotta found herself one of the first - if not the first - African-American women in the country to own and run a newspaper. She continued the Owl’s original mission of fighting for racial equality and against discrimination, and the newspaper served as a source of both information and inspiration for the black community. In 1914, Charlotta hired Joseph Bass, and they married soon after. They changed the name of the newspaper to The California Eagle.
Charlotta was not afraid to speak out for what she believed was right. She fought against restrictive housing covenants, police brutality and harassment, discriminatory hiring practices, segregated schools, and the revival of the KKK. By the 1930s, the Eagle was the largest African-American paper on the West Coast, well known for its pioneering multi-ethnic politics, advocating for Asian-American and Mexican-American civil rights alongside those of African-Americans.
After her husband’s death, Charlotta moved further into community activism, participating in various organizations and becoming a founding member of the Sojourners for Truth and Justice, a women-led civil rights organization with the intention of improving working conditions for black women.
In 1952, she was the first African-American woman to run for Vice President of the United States. Her slogan was “Win or lose, we win by raising the issues.” After retiring, she turned her garage into a community lending library, reading room, and voter registration site. #sayhername

I’m learning to let people in.
It’s scary. It’s easier to be alone, it sucks, but it’s easier. It’s what I know how to do best.
I disconnect myself from unfamiliar, I disconnect myself once someone appears. I’m afraid to be needy. I unconsciously build walls. I’m afraid of not receiving reciprocity, yet I don’t know how to be open to receive it.
