The Barnett’s--Claude A Barnett and his lovely, Etta Moten Barnett, owned a mansion in one of THE most impressive neighborhoods in Chicago. HISTORIC BRONZEVILLE! And while I don't want to bore you with the intriguing details, this family helped put Chicago on the map! Its well documented that there would be no EBONY, JET or TAN magazine without Claude A Barnett.
Did you know this American Journalist FOUNDED the Associated Negro Press, AND MENTORED our dear, kind John Johnson and helped build the magazines that we all know and love.
Back then the AP never wrote interesting, positive stories about Black people. Mr Barnett saw a need for it and founded the ANP. Not only did Claude A Barnett help Mr. Johnson, but he also mentored the brilliant 50 year editor of Ebony magazine, Mr. Lerone Bennett, Jr!
There was nothing in this town that got past Claude A. Barnett. He (AND Etta Moten Barnett) dined with Kings, Queens, celebrities, Drs, Lawyers, Politicians, Presidents, right here in HISTORIC BRONZEVILLE.
His "cliff notes resume" reads as such: He was an American journalist the FOUNDED the Associated Negro Press, Graduate of Tuskegee Institute, decorated by President Wm Tubman of Liberia, also by Haitian President Paul Eugene Magloire, and promoted to Grand Commander by President Francois Duvalier.
Now can we talk a about the incomparable ETTA MOTEN BARNETT? Hollywood STAR, singer, performer during a time where the roles for Black folk were all washer women and butlers and such. Etta Moten Barnett is the woman that changed all that. There's a really informative video up on Estate Sale Goddess that speaks to many of the ills that Ms Barnett faced.
