Colorlines is a daily news site featuring investigative reporting and news analysis from the perspective of communities of color.[1]

History[edit]

Colorlines was founded in 1998.[1] It was originally a print publication published jointly by the Applied Research Center, a public policy institute that focused on race, and the Center for Third World Organizing, a training center for community organizers of color.[2] Bob Wing was the founding editor of Colorlines.[3]

In 2010, Colorlines became an online magazine of the Applied Research Center,[4] which became Race Forward. Articles are primarily composed of essays, investigative reports, think pieces, opinion columns, cultural criticism, fiction, and humor pieces. Within a year of launching as a daily, digital publication, Colorlines was named a Webby Award Honoree for Political Blogs.[5]
