As we, like other news publications (some of which are going out of business) are all still being impacted by the recent economic downturn, the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder remains deeply concerned about our community.

We, as media, are an essential business, so we have a responsibility and an obligation to use this status to continue to be a trusted source of information, support, and inspiration. Our team is working diligently to update and distribute timely news and critical information as we continue to center the stories and voices of the African American community, as we have for over 87 years. Your donation today will help us continue to do just that.

Make a contribution to support community journalism today.  All levels of support are greatly needed and appreciated.
