Boston Ethnic Media
August 2021 – We operate BlackBoston.com, an online platform and blog produced by BostonMurrell, LLC, for Black people of Greater Boston. This ethnic media venue is updated weekly. Subscribers received updates to the site automatically. Subscriptions are free. There is a sign-up form on the right side of the main page at www.BlackBoston.com
We branded the website “BlackBoston.com 1638” to remember Boston’s first Black community built when Blacks settled as Boston residents in the 17th century. The Early African community of Boston was formed after the first documented Africans settled in Boston with their Puritan masters. They were enslaved against their will. They came to Boston as from Angola and Africa and the Caribbean as cargo on a ship named Desire.
BlackBoston.com is one of Boston’s longest running ethnic media outlets. Founded in 2004 as a two page personal website to list Black attractions and things to do in Boston, the site has grown with a membership community and regular readers who read it to get opportunities, news, local information and things to do in Black Boston.
There are many ethnic media organizations in Boston. Some are the Color Magazine, The Bay State Banner African American owned newspaper, the Haitian Reporter newspaper, the Basic Black TV show airing on GBH2 TV network, Blackstonian.com, EthnicOnline.net, Blackinfonow.org – the Black Community Information Center, radio and cable tv programs, the Boston Praise Radio and TV website by the same name, the Unity First newpaper of Springfield Ma and others.
