Cleveland’s historic Call & Post newspaper, which serves the area’s African-American community, is celebrating its 95th anniversary.

A gala party at the Galleria downtown capped events marking the paper’s first 95 years. Among the celebrants was the Call & Post’s current owner, boxing promoter and Cleveland native Don King, who purchased the paper in the late 1990’s.

The paper’s editor and associate publisher, Connie Harper, told WKYC, the Call & Post became an indispensible asset to Northeast Ohio’s black community over the years.

“The Call & Post is a vital part of the community,” said Harper. “It has always been a paper the people could depend on to tell their story even when it was not told in the majority media.”
