The stories of Black Charlottesville have been underrepresented and often misrepresented by local media for ages.

It’s time for a change.

The Charlottesville Inclusive Media project was formed by Charlottesville Tomorrow, In My Humble Opinion Radio Show, and Vinegar Hill Magazine with the goal of bringing more inclusive representation to local media.

These Are Our Stories. Our Media. Our Charlottesville.
