The Emancipator

Earlier this year The Boston Globe and Boston University Center for Antiracist Research announced that they would be teaming up to launch The Emancipator to share opinions, ideas on journalism, and featuring contributions from experts and community voices.

The publication’s name is a nod to America’s first abolitionist newspaper which started in the early 19th-century. The hope is the online publication will create a forum to help reframe the national conversation on race.

“Even when The Emancipator was first founded in 1820, it was very difficult for people to believe that slavery, 45 years later, would be no more. Just as I think there are many people today who can’t imagine there could be a nation without racism and inequality,”

Ibram X. Kendi commenting in the video Announcing: The Emancipator
