As a general rule, I feel that no matter how much I am thinking, reading and talking about race in my day-to-day grind, it’s not enough…
Amidst updates from friends and artists I admire, I really value seeing headlines from Colorlines pop up in my Twitter feed.
For over a decade ColorLines has been bringing us journalism on issues of race, racism and politics. I used to get the print version of their magazine, but have switched over to following them online. Their site, ColorLines is definitely worth checking out. Right now there are feature stories on a wide range of topics, including the relationship between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, a study on depression among Asian American women and The Greening of Hip-Hop.
You can also follow their blog, RaceWire, which has frequently updated content. Posts today cover a range of topics, including a review of David Mamet’s new play Race, a Black cycling star and a film about racism on Alcatraz.
And then of course there’s Twitter, where they keep a steady flow of interesting comments and links to their blogposts flowing… http://twitter.com/racialjustice
Or you can subscribe to the magazine, if you want to get all old fashioned about it… http://colorlines.com/subscribe.php
