The Nashville PRIDE newspaper was founded on January 15, 1988 by Dr. Larry D. Davis and Dr. Cynthia E. Hodge. Dr. Davis, then a professor at historic Meharry Medical College, felt the need to fill a gap in the Nashville community. His vision was to create a source of news for our community that was positive, speaking to our issues and telling our stories.
From our beginnings in historic North Nashville, the Nashville PRIDE mission has been to provide positive community news. We continue to do so as a 21st century publication, providing electronic and print media excellence.
