The Renaissance Of The Black Press

Black media has long been a staple of Black and immigrant communities that have often had to rely on these newspapers to inform them of stories significant to their communities. But years of economic hardships and a failure to modernize have left many of the newspapers a skeleton of their old selves. Until recently.

This year as America’s Black press celebrates 194 years since the founding of Freedom’s Journal in 1827, the sector is enjoying a renaissance fueled in large part by the murder of several unarmed Black men and women at the hands of police officers and the protests and calls for justice that ensued.
