NBC News launches website just for black folks

NBC News has launched a new website that covers “stories by, for and about the black community.” The name of the new venture is NBCBLK. According to an announcement by editor Amber Payne:

Our product is meant to elevate America’s conversation about black identity, politics, and culture.

We share positive, solution-based journalism and report on challenging issues that communities of color face today. NBCBLK taps NBC News journalists around the world to tell these stories, and we curate reports from NBC News platforms — Nightly, Today Show, Dateline, and local affiliates among other NBC outlets.

This is the dawning of a new day in America. Just imagine the possibilities. Some day black people will have their very own water fountains and can enjoy a meal at lunch counters designated exclusively for them.

And Martin Luther King, Jr., thought he had a dream!
