An extensive search through several media reports, demographic-specific content, and various blog articles provided us with numerous pre-compiled lists of blogs written by African Americans for African Americans. Some of these lists include the Top 40 Black Millennial Blogs and Websites to Follow, Top 10 African-American Lifestyle Sites for Men and Women, 20 Black Bloggers You Need to Follow, 14 best blogs for black moms by black moms, and Top 40 Black Travel Blogs, Websites and Influencers in 2020. Each of the websites/blogs from these lists was individually researched to determine if they were mid-sized and catered to the African American and Hispanic communities alone. We were then able to pick out 50 blogs and websites that were written, managed, and focused on the African American community. Please note that none of the blogs/websites chosen provided any readership information.
