The Voice of the Black Community

Independent Journalism

Imagine Charlotte without The Charlotte Post.

Would there be as much in-depth reporting on how African American neighbors push local leaders for community justice? Who would regularly cover Historically Black Colleges and Universities, looking at their health and how they drive local economies? Would there be the same focus on how black business leaders inspire and uplift their communities?

We think you know the answer, and it’s one reason why independent local journalism like your Charlotte Post is essential to Charlotte’s African American community.
The Post has been a trusted source of news since 1906, covering our neighbors when other media ignored or undervalued them.

Over the years, we’ve grown with you, highlighting changes, successes and challenges we’ve faced together. We’re in an era in which the changing media landscape requires a new business model to remain relevant.

That’s where you come in.

The Post needs online subscription and donation funding to ensure our sustainability going forward. Award-winning journalism is costly, and we need your support to continue producing it. We want to be here for you and your stories for another century.

This isn’t a request for charity. It’s an investment in local people – your neighbors – who focus on your stories without fear or favor. You can make an investment by clicking the donate button below.

Your contribution will make a huge difference and we appreciate you.
