The AFRO's Celebration Gala will bring together and recognize the Founders, Leaders, and Supporters of The AFRO News, who share a demonstrated commitment to the achievements made by The AFRO News Publication in the last 130 Years.

Paying homage and tribute to The AFRO for being the oldest family-owned, continuously published Black newspaper in the country, the oldest Black-owned business (family or otherwise) in the State of MD, and the 3rd oldest (family-owned or otherwise) in the country.
