As we’ve reconnected with former Call and Post employees in celebration of our 95th Anniversary, I have been in awe of the style, class and grace of the women who have come in – not to mention the clarity of which they recall their time spent with the paper.
Celebrating the Call and Post’s 95th anniversary
As “Ohio’s Black News Leader,” the Call and Post has been in existence for 95 years. As we honor the longevity of our existence, we also honor the support of Ohio’s African American community. The 95 year journey the Call and Post and its readership have traveled spans generations. Along the way we have lamented our losses and celebrated our triumphs, as a business, as a community and as a people. Our history is your history. On behalf of our Publisher, Associate Publisher and staff, as we celebrate our 95 years, we invite our readers to celebrate with us. Our story is your story. A story we’ve been proud to tell for 95 years, and a story we will continue to tell well into the future.

It is certainly an attribute to be respected. Some people acquire it gradually over a process of work situations and supervision while some are taught at an early age through parental guidance. Others, however they came across it, wear it like regal adornment.
