Spencer Bell in The California Eagle

The historic black press must have had oodles of contemporary articles on African Americans in the Arts. The California Eagle is, so far, the only such journal that I've found available online for free (in this instance, microfilmed on the Internet Archive).
Here is a clip on Spencer Bell- click the photoshopped image below to see the original full California Eagle page from December 28, 1934

WOW! Thanks so much for posting these articles, JFK. Most of which I've never yet seen, especially the tragic account of Curtis McHenry's horrible end.
