ColorLines is an American on-line magazine that covers race and politics in society.[1]

History[edit]

ColorLines was founded in 1998.[2] It was originally a print publication published jointly by the Applied Research Center (www.arc.org), a public policy institute that focused on race, and the Center for Third World Organizing (www.ctwo.org), a training center for community organizers of color.[3] Bob Wing was the founding editor of ColorLines.[4]

In 2010 ColorLines became an on-line magazine[5] of the Applied Research Center, which became Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation. Articles are primarily composed of essays, investigative reports, think pieces, opinion columns, cultural criticism, fiction, and humor pieces.
