"I am honored and proud to represent the NNPA as chairman of this historic and impactful organization," said Rolark Barnes. "Since 1827, the Black Press has listened to and spoken for the African American community. The future looks bright for the team of publishers elected during our 75th Anniversary convention in Detroit, Michigan; three who also happen to be second generation newspaper publishers. We are committed to fulfill the promises we made to our nearly 200 fellow publishers and we will work hard to propel the Black Press into dynamic 21st century media companies."

Publishers were given a detailed look at the latest media spending habits of black consumers, thanks to copies of Target Market News' The Buying Power of Black America report that were distributed at the conference compliments of Mercedes-Benz.

According to the report, black households spent $10.8 billion dollars on media, including cable and satellite services, video streaming and print publications. Newspapers and magazines accounted for $183 million of that total expenditure.
