Cayton's Weekly and Cayton's Monthly

Cayton's Weekly, begun in Seattle in 1916, was Horace Cayton's second attempt at a newspaper, following the 1913 cessation of his first publication, the Seattle Republican. Cayton had become disenchanted with the Republican Party but still tried to work within the organization to push for recognition and appreciation of the support African Americans continued to give to the GOP. While continuing to dismiss the Democrats completely, Cayton was increasingly critical of the Republican Party.

Continuing in the same political vein as the Seattle Republican, Cayton’s new Weekly served a more narrowly defined readership--the small African American population of Seattle and environs. The paper concentrated on issues more than specific news stories and also extolled the accomplishments of black people throughout the nation. In 1921, Cayton changed the publication schedule of the paper which he renamed Cayton’s Monthly.  The paper ceased publication altogether by the end of the year.
