Celebrating Our 40th Year

Celebrating Our 40th Year

We Thank Our Supporters

When The Black Chronicle was launched in 1979, our founding publisher and editor had given himself and this publication an audacious and ambitious motto: to be “the paper that tells the truth!” Throughout those 40 years, we have lived up to that audacious and ambitious pledge. We have done that and we pledge to continue. We have striven to—without bias; without favor— seek and publish the truth in all the news coverage we provide. (As part of our 40th-year celebration, we have included in this edition two pages of photostatic copies of our front pages printed throughout our 40 years. They are on Pages A12 and A13.) Consequently, we have and are still reaping the benefits of fulfilling that pledge. The consequences of doing so have won for us numerous journalistic awards, of course. But what we consider to be the most important prize of all (the unwavering and unmitigated support from the Black community we are sworn to serve and to inform) is the effervescent award we value most. That is the prize for which we are most grateful. There are consequences of that, as well. As a result of what we do and what we have faithfully done throughout our 40 years is that today, The Black Chronicle is the largest weekly, paid circulation news publication in Oklahoma. That says something! What it, in practical terms, means is that we can boast that we have subscribers in every one of the 48 states in the continental United States and in some foreign countries. Well, we are proud of that and we attribute that to our continued allegiance to that pledge we made to ourselves and to our readers 40 years ago: to be “the paper that tells the truth.” We are immensely grateful to you (our readers, our supporters) and we want to take this opportunity to say to you all, “Thank you!”
