Minnesota Spokesman Recorder now designated as a historic landmark

On November 20, 2015, the Minnesota Spokesman Recorder at 3744 4th Ave. South in Minneapolis was designated as a historic landmark. Publisher and CEO Tracey Williams-Dillard’s comments begin at the 4:00 min. mark.

The Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder is the Black-owned business in the state of Minnesota. Established in August 1934 by Cecil E. Newman, the Spokesman-Recorder today remains a family-run newspaper company that is African American and woman-owned, led by Williams-Dillard, granddaughter to Mr. Newman.
