The Voice was founded in 1982 by Val McCalla, who, while working on a London local paper called the East End News in 1981, led a group of businessmen and journalists in a new and uncertain endeavour the creation of a weekly newspaper to cater for the interests of British-born Black people. Until then the Black press in Britain had always addressed a generation of immigrants, relaying news from their countries of origin in the Caribbean and Africa. Publications were named accordingly, with titles such as the West Indian Gazette, West Indian World,The Caribbean Times and West Africa. According to Beulah Ainley, who worked with McCalla on the East End News, "nobody thought the Voice would work", however, as The Independent has noted: "The previous summer, Brixton had rioted, and black enterprises of all kinds were now being encouraged in the hope of preventing a repetition. London's councils, in particular, were keen to advertise for black staff, and even keener to do so in a black newspaper. McCalla also had a business partner, Alex Pascall, with BBC connections; soon the Corporation was advertising too."
The Voice got off the ground with a 62,000 bank loan from Barclay's Bank. At a time when Black businesses found it particularly hard to get backing from banks, The Voice was helped by two factors.
One was Barclay's desire to show support for Black causes, in order to counteract the adverse publicity attracted by their investments in South Africa. The other was the existence of the Loan Guarantee Scheme, set up by the Conservative government as part of Margaret Thatcher's policy of aiding and encouraging the growth of small businesses in Britain. Under the Loan Guarantee Scheme the Government secured 80% of the loan, thereby reducing the risk taken by the bank. As it turned out the loan was fully paid off within five years.
The first issue of The Voice was printed to coincide with the Notting Hill Carnival in August 1982. Its cover price was 54 pence. Initially it was only sold in London.
The Voice′s first office was in Mare Street, Hackney east London. The first editor, Flip Fraser, led a team of young journalists who set about addressing the issues that mattered to Britain's Black community. They laid the foundation for the future success of the paper, combining human-interest stories and coverage of sports, fashion and entertainment with hard news and investigative reporting.
Within two decades it had become "Britain's most successful black newspaper

A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.
