Charlotta Bass was the publisher of the California Eagle newspaper from 1912 to 1951, and a civil rights activist. The California Eagle, covering Los Angeles' African-American community, was one of the oldest and longest running African American newspapers.
Reuben Borough holds a bouquet of flowers for Charlotta Bass upon her return to Los Angeles during her campaign as the Progressive Party Candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from the 14th District of California. A crowd of supporters greet her; a banner reads "Welcome Home! Mrs. Bass, Congresswoman 14 C.D." The same year, Borough was the party's candidate for State Treasurer.
