The Roanoke Tribune

Newspaper
The Roanoke Tribune was founded in 1939 in Roanoke, Virginia, and is one of the oldest African-American newspapers still publishing. Fleming Alexander founded the Roanoke Tribune newspaper in 1939 at 5 Gilmer Avenue, later moved to 312 Henry Street, and then to Melrose Avenue in Roanoke. As an African-American newspaper, it brought attention against the Jim Crow laws of Roanoke and Western Virginia, and championed black representation on Roanoke's public boards and better schools for the black children in the segregated South.
