West Indian Gazette

West Indian Gazette was a newspaper founded in Brixton, London, England, by Trinidadian communist & black nationalist activist Claudia Jones in March 1958. The title as displayed on its masthead was subsequently expanded to West Indian Gazette And Afro-Asian Caribbean News. WIG is widely considered to have been Britain's first major black newspaper. Jones, who originally worked on its development with Amy Ashwood Garvey, was its editor. WIG lasted until 1965, but always struggled financially, closing eight months and four editions after Claudia Jones's death.
