2014-15 Support the Chicago Defender

Ronald Childs and Ingrid Morris 

For years I've asked all in Illinois to support the Chicago Defender by simply investing $1.00 each week to buy this historic newspaper. Every time you buy a Chicago Defender newspaper you support black history and most importantly American history. The Chicago Defender is one of America's oldest black newspapers.

Here's another reason to support the Chicago Defender...did you know the Chicago Defender financially supports the Bud Billiken Parade? The Bud Billiken Parade is the LARGEST and OLDEST African American Parade in the United States of America and is financially supported by the Chicago Defender! The same man who founded the Chicago Defender also founded the Bud Billiken Parade. Click this LINK:

So in essence when you purchase a Chicago Defender newspaper you also financially support the Bud Billiken Parade. Its a win-win situation. Tell your family and friends to buy a Chicago Defender newspaper every chance they get. Many thanks and much love. Please be sure to check out the Chicago Defender website by clicking this link:
