Texas Publishers Assn - African-American Newspapers


Self-described as "Welcome to the the Texas Publishers Association (TPA).  The association is The Black Press of Texas, established in 1986. The association consists of African American owned and operated newspapers serving virtually every region of Texas with a potential reach of 2.9 million African Americans."
It's self-history begins "In the mid-1980's a group of visionary African American publishers in Texas decided to take control of their destinies a step further.  Although long the voice of black Texans, individually, the publications knew they lacked the power and influence that a collective organization could bring.  In unity, there is strength, they realized. "
