Join our Qcity Press Club

We all know that Charlotte is a mixture of newcomers and natives. But whether you hail from Chicago, Dallas or just across town, one thing we share in common — a desire to connect more closely with our community.

That’s why Qcitymetro was created — to connect people. So as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we’ve launched the Qcity Press Club — a members-only group devoted to connecting smart, like-minded people.

Why does membership matter?

The black press has long been a force for social and economic justice in America. Qcitymetro is honored to continue that tradition and deliver journalism that matters. Launched in 2008, we were Charlotte’s first black-owned media organization created in the digital age. Your membership helps to pay for more of the content you’ve come to expect from us.

How long does my membership last?

Membership is for one or two years, depending on the plan you select. At the end of that period, your membership will be automatically renewed with the credit card on record. You may sign in to your account to cancel at any time.

I’ve also seen something on Facebook. What’s that about?

True, our Facebook page offers another way to join the Qcity Press Club. But no matter where you join, you get the same great benefits.

What other ways can I support Qcitymetro?

We’re glad you asked. Here are our top-five suggestions:
