For the first time ever, a five county area in northeastern, North Carolina has a unique source of news from a Black perspective. Greater Diversity News (GDN) and The Bertie, Gates, Halifax, Hertford and Northampton Spotlight (The Spotlight), monthly publications, have come to northeastern, NC with lots of help and support from area churches, businesses, political and community leaders.

Now that they have arrived it is the responsibility of community leaders and businesses to support them, make them successful, and to help them reflect who we are and our aspirations as a community. From all indications, the community is answering the call.

The Spotlight and GDN will be distributed through local churches and businesses and will be available free of charge. The ever growing distribution locations are listed in The Spotlight and we are hereby inviting churches and businesses that have not already joined our distribution network to do so now.

Our local sales representative is Ms. Carolyn Hall (252) 538-1049 and We are in need of part-time distribution persons, writers and additional sales representatives.

In order for our expansion to be successful it is imperative that our community and business leaders contact their public bodies (cities, counties, housing authorities, hospitals, school boards, colleges, etc.) and ask them to regularly include GDN and The Spotlight when advertising jobs, bid opportunities and other matters. It is especially important that political candidates that solicit our votes show their support by advertising in our publications.

Please reflect on places where you do business and make them aware of their need to support our efforts in an ongoing manner.

Lastly, a growing number of supporters are actively planning our way forward by participating in periodic telephone conference calls and by engaging in other support activities. We are hereby inviting our readers to support our efforts by joining our calls and giving input into other activities that are supportive.

We thank the supporters of GDN and The Sampson-Duplin Spotlight and look forward to a long and beneficial relationship.
