The Tribune is a newspaper serving the area's African-American community. The paper was established in 1954 as the Charlottesville-Albemarle Tribune[1] and changed names in 1992.

History

  • Randolph Louis White founded the paper in 1954.[2]
  • The Charlottesville-Albemarle Tribune was renamed The Tribune in 1954.<name=locoldtrib/>
  • The Tribune ceased publication in 2011.[2]

Staff

The Tribune is currently[when?] published by Agnes Cross-White. [3]

Former Democratic City Councilor Meredith Richards contributed monthly columns to the paper in 2004 and 2005 to balance the "very conservative Republican views" of Cross-White, who she has known for a long time and who invited her to contribute[4].

Circulation controversy

In 2003 Cross-White was sued for $1 million by former advertising representative Rosanna Harris, who alleged Cross-White lied about circulation numbers for the paper. Cross-White called the suit "frivolous" and alleged that Harris stole her car.[5][6]
