Indiana Minority Business Magazine, a four-year-old publication founded by a local businessman, has been sold to the Indianapolis Recorder newspaper, one of the oldest black newspapers in the country, according to a release, for an undisclosed price.

Indiana Minority BusinessThe Recorder says it plans to use the magazine to raise awareness in the minority community about diverse areas of business. Although the newspaper tackles issues in the black community, the magazine writes about issues and topics for all minorities, such as women and the growing Hispanic population.

“We’re becoming a much more culturally diverse population. With the magazine, many of the business issues we are seeing are ones all small and minority businesses are seeing. It’s not just one race,” said Carolene Mays, publisher and president of the Recorder, in the release.Â
