If you see me, I’ll probably have my dog in one hand and an iced coffee in the other.

Madeline Holly-Carothers


If you ever want to strike up a conversation with me, just ask about my next vacation; there’s always one in the works.

Jalon Hill


If I were a fruit, I’d be a tomato. Everybody sleeps on tomatoes being a fruit. There are people still sleeping on me.

Amanda Harry

Marketing Coordinator

When I was 9 years old, I won a car. I consider myself to be quite lucky.

Destiniee Jaram


I love to travel and want to visit all 50 states in memory of my grandmother who did the same. So far my favorite states have been Texas and Louisiana.

Founded in 2008, QCity Metro was among the first digital-only platforms created to serve a local, Black audience. Today, our online presence includes our website, newsletters and social media platforms including FacebookTwitter, YouTube and Instagram.

Throughout our nation’s history, the Black press has been a tireless advocate for social justice, racial equality and balanced representation. Help us build on that tradition in Charlotte.
