Frost Illustrated is an independent weekly newspaper,[1][2] featuring “News & Views of African Americans” in Fort Wayne, Indiana.[3][4][5] Established in 1968, it is Fort Wayne's oldest weekly newspaper.[6] Frost is a member of the National Newspaper Association, The National Newspaper Publishers Association, and The Hoosier State Publishers Association, and the Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce.[6]

The publication was a product of the 1960s and originally had several competitors providing news coverage that catered to the minority community.[7] According to Frost Illustrated publisher, Edward Smith,[8] the paper differentiated itself through photography, marketing itself as an "illustrated" paper.[9]

In 1969, African-American cartoonist Richard "Grass" Green drew the strip Lost Family for Frost Illustrated.[10][11][12]
