Not many black businesses in Winston-Salem have been around 43 years. But The Chronicle has. With the recent move to East Fifth Street, The Chronicle has moved closer to the community it was founded to serve.

No doubt many changes have taken place since the newspaper was founded in September 1974. For instance, there are now four black City Council members. It just so happens that two of them – James Taylor Jr. and Derwin Montgomery – now own The Chronicle.

There are now city recreation centers, some of which are run by black men. There is a Black Chamber of Commerce. There are black coaches at various high school and colleges, including Wake Forest University. There is a black female chief of police. There are numerous areas in which black people are in charge in Winston-Salem now. We are thankful that black people are being recognized in the 21st century as great contributors to the Winston-Salem society.

The Chronicle has been in the mix, covering the achievements of black people in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. We are thankful for the support of the community and advertisers, who support us so that we can chronicle the changes taking place.

On this Thanksgiving Day, we say “Thank You” for your support, and “We appreciate your business.”
