Until the lion learns to write, every story will glorify the hunter.”
African proverb

For too long, communities of color in America have been defined by media voices that were not our own. QCity Metro was founded in 2008 with a mission to give greater voice to Charlotte’s Black communities.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
