Today is a very sad day in the world of newspaper. Yesterday morning we learned that the long time publisher of Durham’s Carolina Times newspaper, Mr. Kenneth Edmonds, passed away. Edmonds was the grandson of the founder, Mr. Louis Austin. The Carolina Times has been a staple in the Black community in Durham for almost 100 years. This lost was unexpected and extremely devastating. Our love and prayers go out to Edmonds’ family.
