Where storytelling about black life is nurtured...and the world is our newsroom.
It has been said that "journalism is the first rough draft of history." IFAJS will give you an insider's look at history in the making by sharing with you the transcripts or recordings of conversations that black journalists have had with newsmakers.
In a twist on the old TV series, IFAJS journalists will publish reports on this site that will give you a front row seat on important stories about black life in America - and throughout the African diaspora.
People of African descent can be found in the far reaches of this world. IFAJS will share some of their stories with you.
In February 2014, President Barack Obama launched "My Brother's Keeper," a program that focused to addressing problems that disproportionately affected boys and young men of color.
At the time, I interviewed Valarie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama about this program. You can view that interview here.
