Description:
An alternative newspaper published in Savannah, Georgia during 1970. Albion's Voice reported on the war in Vietnam, racism, women's/gay liberation, environmental issues and counter-culture topics and events. No issue was dated, issues 3, 4, 5 were numbered and issues 1, 2, and 6 were assigned numbers by the archivist in approximate chronological order.
Initially Albion's Voice was sponsored by Armstrong State College Literary Club. Soon after publication the College's administration froze the club's finances and disavowed any connection between the school and the publication (From the Mansion to the University. Janet Stone. 2010 p. 153.) Editor Bill Strong attended Armstrong State College during this period and graduated in from the school in 1980. See Albion's Voice 1 page 2 "Pleased to Meet You" for the newspaper's editorial policy and explanation of title. Albion's Voice 2 described the paper as "truly independent" published by the Savannah Blues Co-op with an editorial office at 24 W. Gaston St., Savannah, Ga. Contributors and staff includes: Bill Lovett, Nancy Patterson, Otis Johnson, Mike Braun, and Terence Seyden. Alibon's Voice was printed in Atlanta by Sojourner Truth Press and thanked Atlanta's alternative paper The Great Speckled Bird.
