The City of Raleigh Museum announces a celebration of one of North Carolina's oldest African American newspapers, The Carolinian. Founded in 1940 by P.R. Jervay Sr., The Carolinian was both the newspaper and a printing shop. For a little over two decades the Carolinian's print shop published six additional newspapers, which were circulated in major cities throughout the state. Today, the Carolinian remains the only African-American newspaper published twice weekly in the state, while continuing to circulate throughout North Carolina.
Join state and local leaders to celebrate the more than 80 year history of the newspaper and its service to the community. The event will held on Saturday February 26, 2022 and is free and open to the public. The event begins at 1 pm and will be held in the COR Museum located at 220 Fayetteville St. in Raleigh. For more information contact The Carolinian newspaper at (919) 834-5558.
