Local news needs your support

The AFRO American Newspapers (The AFRO) knows what it's like to endure challenging times. Founded in 1892 by John H.

With your much needed support, we can continue to bring news and information about the community for another 128 years and beyond, and keep you informed with our COVID-19 coverage. Your contribution is sincerely appreciated.

Your donation of any amount entitles you to a FREE six-month subscription to The AFRO's e-edition.
