Welcome to African American Voice
In June 2016, the African American Voice celebrated its Twenty-fifth Anniversary, and in so doing will become the longest-running Black monthly newspaper ever published in Southern Colorado and the largest Black monthly serving Colorado Springs Metro, Denver Metro and Pueblo.
The Voice is the brainchild of publisher and owner James Tucker, who conceived the idea while serving in Saudi Arabia and southern Iraq during the Gulf War. James’ goals then, as now, were to awaken the larger community to the needs and untapped potential of African Americans living in Colorado, while at the same time, bringing to the state broad awareness of the diverse mix of local, regional, national and international issues that have, and will continue to have, an impact upon their lives. In addition, the Voice is committed to promoting and preserving United States history.
