Activities Among Negroes was a regular column, authored by Delilah L. Beasley in the Oakland Tribune. Below are clippings of that column from archives, in chronological order.

Following Beasley's death in 1934, Thomas E. Fleming wrote a number of columns, and Lena M. Wysinger took over after that. It occasionally appeared as Activities Among Eastbay Negroes, News of Negro Activities, or other titles. Beginning in June 1941, it was known as Activities of Negroes.

Two quotes from her memorial, in Activities Among Negroes/Sun, Oct 14, 1934:

"The Clansman attitude during the exposition in San Francisco led her to request the Oakland Tribune to publish articles of outstanding Negro visitors and their achievements. Finally she was employed as a special feature writer of The Tribune, covering Activities Among Negroes, which proved an asset for better race relations."

"Mrs. Artieda made special mention of Miss Beasley's attitude and expression, "Others first, self last." Her special feature column from The Tribune are clipped and filed, preserved for reference and general information in the office of the Public Welfare League. Mesdames Spencer and Artieda expressed the desire that Miss Beasley's articles be placed in book form for future reference,"

There are likely missing entries, please help find them.

Sun, Oct 14, 1934

Delilah Beasley, News Writer, Dies

Miss Delilah L. Beasley, 62, Negro, who contributed news of her race in Oakland to The Tribune for many years, died early yesterday at Fairmont Hospital after an illness of several months.

She was prominent in Negro club circles and was active in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Her home was at 705 Thirty-fourth Street.

Funeral arrangements are being made by the L. M. Hudson Mortuary. Services have been tentatively set for Tuesday morning but are being held up pending the receipt of advices from friends at Los Angeles.

Miss Beasley, a native of Cincinnati, O., had lived 25 years in California. She had no close relatives.
