Colorlines is an American online magazine that covers race and politics in society.[4]


Colorlines was founded in 1998.[4] It was originally a print publication published jointly by the Applied Research Center, a public policy institute that focused on race, and the Center for Third World Organizing, a training center for community organizers of color.[5] Bob Wing was the founding editor of Colorlines.[6]

In 2010, Colorlines became an online magazine of the Applied Research Center,[7] which became Race Forward. Articles are primarily composed of essays, investigative reports, think pieces, opinion columns, cultural criticism, fiction, and humor pieces.
