Philadelphia Tribune

The Philadelphia Tribune is the oldest continually publishing African-American newspaper in the United States. The paper began in 1884 when Christopher J. Perry released its first copy. Throughout its history, The Philadelphia Tribune has been committed to the social, political, and economic advancement of African Americans in the Greater Philadelphia region. During a time when African Americans struggled for equality, the Tribune acted as the "Voice of the black community" for Philadelphia. Historian V.P. Franklin asserted that the Tribune "was (and is) an important Afro-American cultural institution that embodied the predominant cultural values of upper, middle, and lower class Black Philadelphians."
