The Emancipator is a digital publication that reimagines the first abolitionist newspapers in the United States. Just as 19th-century anti-slavery publications reframed and amplified the quest for abolition, the new Emancipator centers critical voices, debates, and evidence-based opinion to reframe the national conversation on racial equity and hasten racially just outcomes. The platform provokes new conversations and progress on racial justice through big ideas driven by data, commentary, and scholarship.
