About Us

Central Florida’s quality, African-American newspaper, is published every Thursday and has a larger circulation than any other African-American newspaper in Orange County. Founded by Publisher, Dr. Calvin Collins and several of his colleagues, The Orlando Times opened its doors for business on July, 5 1975.

Our mission is to publish African American news from a Black perspective .  We feel that in order to do this, we must produce a community-backed paper with input from and high regards for the community, thus keeping our readers interested.

We would not be able to succeed without their support.  Moreover, we diligently try to narrow the chasm between races and inform and educate all of our readers by printing positive information about African Americans and other minorities.
