Inspire Us

Finding Inspiration in Everyday People

On November 23, 1993, Don G. Black created a voice for Dayton’s African American community that has been heard without fail, each Thursday, ever since. In creating the Dayton Weekly News, he aspired to provide the community a positive view of itself, not by glossing over bad news, but by highlighting the good things that happen each week. He sought to inspire us. He sought to change the narrative about us. We stay dedicated to this mission and ask you to grow with us. Send us a message to tell us the story of the person that inspires you or is helping to change the narrative about us.
