Ethnic Newspapers

Ethnic newspapers have been published in the U.S. since 1732, when Benjamin Franklin's Philadelphische Zeitung first appeared for German immigrants to Pennsylvania. Franklin's paper covered local and international news stories translated from his Philadelphia Gazette. Naturally, ethnic newspapers tend to appear in areas with large numbers of immigrants or citizens who primarily speak other languages. Such papers help members of their communities with the issues they are facing as new residents and also promote the heritage and traditions of their native countries. Of North Carolina's foreign-born population, Latin Americans make up the largest share, accounting for 53 percent of immigrants in the state in 2018. Asians are the second-largest share of immigrants in North Carolina, comprising almost 30 percent of the state's foreign-born population.
