Lillian Thomas Fox (1866-1917) was Indianapolis' first African-American female journalist and an outspoken member of the African-American community. She was an assistant editor for the local African-American newspaper, the Indianapolis Freeman in 1891. In 1900, Fox became the first African-American woman hired by a white-owned paper; the Indianapolis News, to write a regular news column. In 1903, she founded the Woman's Improvement Club, which provided health care to tuberculosis patients and scholarships to assist indigent African-Americans. Fox also organized the Indiana State Federation of Colored Women's Clubs in 1904.
