Speaking of the publication, Charles said: “Over the past four decades, with all the enormous changes they have witnessed, Britain’s only surviving black newspaper has become an institution and a crucial part of the fabric of our society.”

The Voice was first launched in 1982 and is the only national newspaper that serves the Afro-Caribbean community.
