Announcement: new editor of Racialicious

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

I’m happy to announce that starting today, Latoya Peterson will be Editor of Racialicious!

I’ve been very impressed by the depth and breadth of Latoya’s writing, and of her ability to facilitate conversations on this blog that are inclusive not only of people of all different racial/ethnic backgrounds, but also of people who are dealing with “isms” other than race: class, gender, size, and so on.

I’ll still be around of course, but I’ll be less involved in the day-to-day operations of the blog.

Please join me in congratulating Latoya! I know that she’ll do a great job and make Racialicious an even more vibrant community! :)
