AfroLA will launch its digital news product in early 2023. But, in the meantime, we've got a newsletter where you can get the latest news, updates and access to our first stories. As we learn more about what our readers and our community wants and needs, we'll publish content about what matters most to both. Don't look to us to keep pace with the breaking news cycle. Part of what makes AfroLA unique is our approach: Los Angeles news with nuance that takes a step back to contextualize its impact, especially for the Black community.

Sign up for our The Latest newsletter here.

Explore the archive of pre-launch stories below.
Stay tuned for upcoming stories!
