The African Community in Colorado continues to grow. As this growth is projected to continue, coverage of Colorado’s Africans by local and international news media shows us how important the community is to the state’s politics.
The community in Colorado brings together not just Africans who migrated to the United States, but also African-Americans, and other people of color, who have made the state their home. Africa News Matters, and our sister website, Africa Agenda, have made it a priority to research the manner of coverage of the local community — whether it is adequate —reportage that frames the community fairly and objectively.
Some of the articles you see on this page, and other pages on this website take into account the totality of the news vis-à-vis this important and growing US demographic.
