The Robesonian is a newspaper published in Lumberton, North Carolina, Tuesday through Friday afternoon and Saturday and Sunday morning.
Notable events 
The newspaper attracted national attention when on 1 February 1988 two Native Americans entered the newspaper's office and armed with pistols and sawed-off shotguns took twenty hostages. The stand-off lasted ten hours; Timothy Jacobs and Eddie Hatcher hoped to attract attention to the plight of American Indians, and later, after their arrest, had a local civil rights attorney deliver a letter to Mikhail Gorbachev in anticipation of a summit between Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev.
