Carolina Israelite

This chapter examines Harry Golden’s career at South Carolina, where he would launch his personal journal, the Carolina Israelite. At Charlotte, Golden became intrigued by two aspects of life: the prevalence of prostitution and segregation, which he constantly wrote about during his career. The chapter describes Golden’s work at the Charlotte Labor Journal and Dixie Farm News which became popular within Charlotte’s Jewish community, due to his anti-discrimination articles. The community’s members became the first subscribers of the Carolina Israelite. Despite his popularity however, Golden knew that he needed the help of famous personalities to promote his paper which contained his views. As a way to “court the big shots,” Golden awarded gold medals, as determined by his readers’ votes. Some of the recipients of the award were North Carolina Governor J. Melville Broughton and Frank Porter Graham, president of the University of North Carolina.
