Wisconsin Labor Advocate: Newspaper
published in La Crosse in 1886-1887. La Crosse was a hotbed of Labor
political party activity in the 1880s and the “Labor Advocate” was one of at
least four La Crosse area Labor-related newspapers from that time. What
makes the “Labor Advocate” unique was its editor and owner: George Edwin
Taylor. Taylor was an African-American, born in Arkansas in 1857. As a
black business owner, he was an anomaly in La Crosse in the 1880s. Taylor
got his start in publishing working at other La Crosse newspapers. He also
became increasingly interested in politics as reflected in his editorship of
the “Wisconsin Labor Advocate.” The last existing edition of the paper
dates from August 6, 1887 and George Edwin Taylor left La Crosse soon
afterwards. He maintained a life-long interest in politics and by 1904 had
become involved an all African-American political party called the National
Liberty Party. Taylor accepted the nomination of that party in 1904 as its
candidate for the office of the U.S. President. In doing so, Taylor was the
first candidate of a national African-American party for the U.S.
