About Race Inquiry and Race Inquiry Digest


In 2015, Race Inquiry Inc., a 501 (c) (3), was founded as an independent, non-commercial, website devoted to the curation and dissemination of news about race in America. Race is interpreted broadly, which includes the political and social activity of the major racial/ethnic groups, and their interactions on the American stage.

Strategy and Implementation 

Over 50 news sources are reviewed for stories that demonstrate excellence in analysis and reporting. Links to selected articles are published bi-weekly ( Monday and Thursday) in a summarized and easily readable format under the heading Race Inquiry Digest. The Digest is divided into six categories: Feature, Political/Social, Ethics/Morality/Religion, Historical/Cultural, Sports, and Site Information. In addition, articles appearing in the Digest are also published and archived on our home page under the following categories: National News, World News, Original, Sports, Culture, Past Voices, Opinion, Collegiate Voices, Ethics/Morality/Religion and Book/Podcast and Video Favorites.
