Street sign | Richmond Free Press

This week, we honor the late Raymond H. Boone Sr. from whose vision and purpose the Richmond Free Press was born.

Mr. Boone’s commitment to vigorous debate and the inclusion of all people in the life and direction of this city has added a wider voice and broader viewpoint that has greatly benefited this community since the newspaper’s founding 26 years ago.

Richmond City Councilwoman Ellen F. Robertson and members of the Richmond City Council voted on Sept. 26, 2016, to memorialize Mr. Boone’s distinguished contributions to the civic well-being of Richmond as an advocate for equality and free expression under the First Amendment. City Council designated the 100 block of North 5th Street in front of the Free Press offices in honor of Mr. Boone.
