NNPA is a trade association of the more than 200 African American-owned community newspapers from around the United States. Since its founding 75 years ago, NNPA has consistently been the voice of the black community.
The Black Press believes that America can best lead the world away from racial and national antagonisms when it accords to every person, regardless of race, color or creed, full human and legal rights. Hating no person, the Black Press strives to help every person in the firm belief that all are hurt as long as anyone is held back.
The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) is committed to providing its members with valuable information, opportunities, and services. We recognize that communication amongst our publishers is a key tool to improving the industry.
As the only national website featuring news exclusively from African-American journalists and Black community publications, www.BlackPressUSA.com has been well-received by on-line news readers, including several popular Black talk radio hosts. “I used to check the Washington Post’s website first thing every morning,” says Joe Madison, morning talk radio host at WOL-AM in Washington, DC. “Now I check BlackPressUSA.com.”
We assist our advertisers with the planning & implementation of any marketing campaign targeting our readership and the African American Community. Utilizing NNPA Media Services is an efficient and effective way to reach a diversified target audience with customized advertising packages.
The buying power of the African American community is projected to grow to $1.3 trillion by 2017, according to Nielsen Media Research and NNPA research services.
As the largest and most influential Black-owned media resource in America, NNPA delivers news, information, and commentary to over 20 million people each week.
