New Black Online News Source - TheRoot.com


Check out www.TheRoot.com - a new website by the Washington Post company. This online magazine is targeted to African Americans - with news and commentary on politics and culture as well as tools for researching one's family genealogy. Henry Louis Gates Jr is the editor of TheRoot.com. Lynette Clemetson is the Managing Editor. Check out the site or read article from the New York Times. Let's hope there will be future stories on African American reading and book purchasing trends, author and illustrator profiles! Enjoy!

I love Professor Gates! Watched both of his series, the second in a one day marathon. I've forward the news of The Root on to friends of mine who are African American. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I hope you enjoyed it.

Cheers!
