The Philadelphia Tribune Newspaper is Founded

On this date in 1884, Christopher Perry founded the Philadelphia Tribune.  This is the oldest continually published non-church newspaper and one of the first Black newspapers in America.

The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), at its 68th Annual Merit Award Ceremony in Louisville, in 2008, presented its highest honor, the John B. Russwurm Award for "Best Newspaper," to The Tribune.  The Tribune has been named the nation's best Black newspaper at the award ceremony in seven of the last twelve years.
The newspaper, headquartered in Philadelphia, is currently led by its publisher, Robert W. Bogle.
