Mapping Black Media | Center for Community Media

As part of the Center for Community Media’s (CCM) Black Media Initiative, we’re offering a map and directory of nearly 300 media outlets across the U.S. that primarily serve Black communities across the diaspora. With a national map that includes publications of multiple formats and topics, we are filling a long-existing void.

Black media has been historically classified as newspapers – often weekly – owned by an African-American publisher that print in cities with significant Black populations. We’ve included those – the vast majority of the list — alongside digital startups that cover niche topics, publications that serve West Indian and African audiences, radio stations, nonprofit newsrooms and more. You can sort the database by location, format, publication schedule, audience, ownership and contact information.
