About this work
Mainstream media often treats the mere presence of Black bodies—despite their nuances in heritage, origin story, appearance or beliefs—as one amorphous entity.
But, Black 👏🏾is 👏🏾 not 👏🏾 a 👏🏾 monolith 👏🏾
This is why I started AfroLA. Because Los Angeles, especially Black Angelenos, deserve better.
AfroLA is solutions-focused, data-driven and community-centered journalism for Los Angeles, told through the lens of the Black community, and with emphasis on how news may disparately impact L.A.'s most vulnerable groups and communities of color. We are a nonprofit digital newsroom trying transform L.A.’s media landscape.
