40 Of The Best Black News Websites You Should Be Reading In 2020

Every morning I catch up on news from around the Black world using Feedly – a free feed reader application that lets you follow hundreds of sites.

If you want to keep up with what is going on in the Black world, here are the websites I suggest you watch.

How We Chose These Black News Websites

The first factor we took into consideration was the number of monthly views. The more visitors a website had, the higher it ranked.

We also looked at how often the website was updated. Websites with more than 100 updates per month were ranked higher than sites that rarely posted.

Finally, we looked at content. Websites that had news that was more relevant to readers earned a higher rank than others.

Caribbean News

Caribbean nations include Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat (a British overseas territory in the Leeward Islands), Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Some nations are larger or more influential than others, which is why they have their own categories below.
