The Afro Texan Press 

The Early Years



Charles N. Love 


The Texas Freeman was launched at Houston with J. S. Tibbitt as Editor; Emmett J. Scott, Associate Editor, and Charles N. Love (1862-1946)  as Business Manager. Later Mr. Scott and Mr. Love acquired Mr. Tibbitt's interest and for three years "The Freeman," under their management, was the most powerful and influential organ of the colored people of Texas. 

Charles N. Love was editor and owner of the Houston Texas Freeman after E. J. Scott moved to Tuskegee in 1897. In the 1930s he was vice-president of the Informer Publishing Company.
