Local news needs your support

Published continuously, without missing a single issue, since 1928, The St. Louis American newspaper has emerged as the leading, most-trusted voice of the area’s African-American community. Moreover, The  American has extended its reach to become a major multi-platform media entity. The St. Louis American is now the single largest weekly newspaper in the entire state of Missouri.

To our all friends and supporters, despite these challenging and uncertain times, The St. Louis American continues to print every week.

The St. Louis American continues to provide valuable information and uplifting stories. While our amazing, dedicated team members are working safely from home, we continue to print and distribute The St. Louis American newspaper each week in response to strong reader demand. Copies of this week’s paper are available at 62 area Schnucks stores and 64 Walgreens stores as well as other locations (delivery drivers wear protective masks and gloves and practice social distancing). Our award-winning editorial team is working hard updating stlamerican.com and posting on our social media sites several times daily, with the latest COVID-19 news and other local news.

Many readers have asked how they can support The St. Louis American as we strive to serve the community through our continuing and expansive COVID-19 coverage. In response, we have teamed up with the Local Media Foundation's Local News Fund. Thank you as always for your tremendously loyal support as we weather this crisis.

Through our partnership with the Local Media Foundation, donations are tax deductible. And we’ll acknowledge all donors in the newspaper and on our site.

I may be white and living in the UK but I empathise with fellow human beings, wherever they are. Supporting quality reporting is the least I can do. Keep up the great work.
