Founded in 1938 by Civil Rights leader Percy Greene, the Advocate was conceived to help give a voice to oppressed people in segregated Jackson. Still considered the voice of black Mississippians, this weekly newspaper features news of particular significance to African-Americans and still strives to serve those citizens who find themselves with a limited voice in society. The Advocate's offices are currently housed in the historic Hill-Holly Building
that dates to 1903 and is a nationally-registered Historic Place.
