The Philadelphia Tribune
With a rich history of growth and advocacy that closely mirrors the nation’s Civil Rights progress, The Philadelphia Tribune is the nation’s oldest continuously published newspaper reflecting the African-American experience.
In 1884, Christopher James Perry, Sr., an ambitious and civic-minded leader in the African-American community founded the Tribune when he was only 28 years old. Then called The Weekly Tribune, the newspaper began modestly, as a one-page, one-man operation dedicated to promoting the interests of African Americans in the city of Philadelphia.
In 1989, Robert W. Bogle became president of the Tribune, after serving as executive vice president, treasurer and director of marketing and advertising.
Bogle has led the paper through another series of well-timed expansions: the launches of the Sunday Tribune (making the Tribune a five-day publication), Tribune Magazine, and phillytrib.com. In keeping with the major issues of the times, The Philadelphia Tribune has introduced annual special editions dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr., Black History Month and The Yearbook (featuring high school graduates).
Bogle has also introduced various events (Christopher J. Perry/Carter G. Woodson Black History Luncheon, Women of Achievement, Student Achievers and The Tribune’s signature event — Philadelphia’s Most Influential African Americans) to showcase and highlight the African American achievements in the Greater Philadelphia region.
Through it all, the Tribune has amassed hundreds of awards for writing, photography, and significantly, public service. The recognition ranges from The A. Phillip Randolph Messenger Award for Outstanding Journalism in the area of civil rights to the “Russward Award” for Best Newspaper in America.
The Philadelphia Tribune is more than a newspaper. It continues to tell the story of African Americans in print and online, and host events under the umbrella of The Philadelphia Tribune Media Group.
