The “Black Panther” contest is made possible through Urban News & Views, a partnership between the AJC and Kiss 104.1 FM, which launched in 2017. The media companies, both part of Cox Media Group-Atlanta, started the initiative to feature news and information focused on diverse culture and communities in metro Atlanta.

“Often the media is criticized for not fulfilling the promise of more coverage, and more accurate coverage, of ethnic communities,” said Monica Richardson, the AJC’s managing editor.

“Urban News & Views is aimed at fulfilling that promise. It doesn’t meet all the needs but it’s a fresh start, building off the strong news and entertainment foundation of the AJC and Kiss 104.1 brands.”
