We started a community news publication on May 2001 the inscription below the banner read:
Brothers United Who Dare to Care, Inc. presents this newsletter, “SPEAK UP”, in an effort to inform, educate and inspire the people of this community.Encouraged by an article in the March 2001 newsletter, “THE WRITTEN WORD” (WashingtonDC area), Oronde Miller wrote “There is currently a need for more strong African publications that can galvanize the attention of and mobilize the greater African community.This is our challenge today”.Brothers United Who Dare to Care, Inc., has accepted that challenge and we are providing this medium as an instrument to share information and ideas. The newsletter will feature several sections to help draw and encourage contribution by all: EMPOWER THE PEOPLE, This section will be dedicated to articles about training, self-help programs and any other information that can possibly increase the readers potential. WORD ON THE STREET, this section will be dedicated to passing along information as to what is going on in the Jonathan Street area and our community as a whole.Listed may be notification of employment opportunities, home owner opportunities, and what our readers know of what is going on in our community that can benefit or effect us all. SPEAK UP, this section dedicated solely for feedback, if you have something to say, SPEAK UP!
The publication has grown in readership and added different sections to meet the interest of our readers including the back page Speak Up Photo Gallery.
