March 16, 1827, the Freedom’s Journal newspaper was founded.
It was the first Black-owned and operated newspaper in the United States.
Started by a group of free Black men in New York City, the paper served
to counter racist commentary published in the mainstream press.

The Philadelphia Tribune, founded in 1884 is our local paper that speaks
mainly to the AfricanAmerican community. and counters racist commentary
still published in the mainstream press and highlights the many positive
accomplishments and events of our community.

Reading the free Metro paper on the bus on the way to center city to buy a
new iMac. Got a good price. A guy will be out on Thursday to transfer data from
this iMac to the new one, set up the new one and take the old one away for recycling.
