National Newspaper Publishers Association

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) was founded in 1940 when John H. Sengstacke, of the Chicago Defender, organized a meeting with other African-American publishers intended for "harmonizing our energies in a common purpose for the benefit of Negro journalism". The group decided to form the National Negro Publishers Association. In 1956, the trade association was renamed the National Newspaper Publishers Association.[1]

In the early 21st century, the NNPA is composed of more than 200 black newspapers in the United States and the Virgin Islands. They have a combined readership of 15 million, and the organization has created an electronic news service, BlackPressUsa web site, which enables newspapers to provide real-time news and information to its national constituency. "In 2000, the NNPA launched NNPA Media Services — a print and web advertising placement and press release distribution service."[2]
