Dayton's African American
voice since 1993

The Dayton Weekly News, established in 1993 by Don G. Black, is Dayton, Ohio’s longest-running African American newspaper. It aims to provide fair and accurate coverage of news and events within the African-American community, filling a void identified by Black in 1993. Since its inception, the newspaper has been committed to delivering weekly content covering local politics, health, education, business, community news, religion, sports, and entertainment. Following in the footsteps of pioneers like Paul Laurence Dunbar, the paper continues its mission to provide positive and informative news for its readers, both in print and online

April is National Minority Health Month, a time to encourage awareness about the importance of improving the health of racial and ethnic minority communities and reducing health disparities.


This month is also the perfect time to express appreciation to minority medical professionals who use their talents to serve a variety of ethnicities in our communities.

April marks Autism Acceptance Month. This month is meant to be a time for uplifting autistic voices and sharing in the community's joy. Its purpose is to affirm and promote the full realization of human rights and fundamental freedoms for individuals with Autism, ensuring they are treated equally with others.
