On March 13, 1932, the Atlanta Daily World newspaper commenced its daily publication, marking a significant milestone.

Established by William A. Scott II, a graduate of Morehouse College, the paper initially operated as a semi-weekly publication starting in August 1928. However, it swiftly evolved into the first prosperous Black daily newspaper in the United States.

Covering a wide array of pressing issues, the Daily World fearlessly reported on topics such as lynchings, police brutality, the Scottsboro Boys trial, discrimination within the federal government, and school segregation.

In 1934, William A. Scott II was fatally shot at the age of 32, however, no one was convicted for the crime.
