Proquest no longer maintains the Historical Black Newspapers database, 
and searches are now difficult while the database finds another vendor. 
If someone still has access, I need an article from the Chicago 
Defender, and the date of it would be in the 1927-1929 range, I believe. 
  It's written by the famous comedian & actor Salem Tutt Whitney, and 
it's supposed to be a biographical sketch about him, in his own words. 
(He wrote a regular column for the Defender in the 1920s.) If someone 
has access to it, please let me know.
