About RI

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 social activity and impact of the major racial/ethnic groups, and their interactions on the American stage.

Over 50 news sources are reviewed for stories that demonstrate excellence in analysis and reporting. Links to selected articles are published bi-weekly in a summarized and easily readable format, under the heading Race Inquiry Digest. In addition, links to these articles 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 and Book/ Video Favorites.
