Capital B

news organization

Capital B is a local-national nonprofit news organization that centers Black voices, audience needs and experiences, and partners with the communities it serves.

Our national team produces in-depth journalism on topics of crucial importance to Black people across the country, such as education, housing, health, the environment, criminal justice, and politics.

Capital B Atlanta is the first in a growing network of local newsrooms anchored by Capital B’s national hub. Our Atlanta newsroom publishes need-to-know information — such as how to find affordable housing, apply for benefits, and vote — civic journalism, and accountability reporting, with an editorial strategy informed by intensive community listening and engagement with Black metro Atlanta residents.

We aim to be an antidote to the misinformation, disinformation, and low-quality, low-context news that clouds our information pipelines. Capital B offers clear, accessible reporting on a local and national level that’s tailored to the needs of our audience and free for all.

Capital B is the news we deserve.
