27 years young
1/18/2019, 6 a.m.
The Richmond Free Press turned 27 this week. We are proud to highlight this accomplishment as we remain one of the few independent newspapers still publishing in Virginia.
We remember and honor our spirited and intrepid founder, the late Raymond H. Boone Sr., who launched the first edition of the Richmond Free Press on Jan. 16, 1992.
We remain committed to the vision and mission that spurred Mr. Boone to establish a newspaper in Virginia’s capital dedicated to promoting fairness and justice, providing a platform for the free expression of ideas based on the First Amendment, standing against racism and holding politicians accountable, along with working for the revitalization of Downtown. We still stand on our belief in those principles.
As we celebrate this milestone, we thank each and every one of our many readers, advertisers and supporters who contribute to our continued success. We salute you and look forward to the years to come.
