If you're looking to keep up with black news in the U.S., especially since the mainstream media is written by and for white people, check out The Root. They're great for finding out which white cop shot which black person each day, and they also publish opinion and culture pieces.
They've been posting great black history pieces this month, like Carol Taylor’s 1st Flight Made History for African Americans.
Plus some really fascinating pieces like How the Concepts of Evil and Darkness Became Linked to African People. If you're into religious history, oh my god, this shit is great.
The Root is just fucking awesome for general news and writing by a wide range of black writers. Don't just check it out. Put it on your bookmarks bar and add it to your daily site checklist.
