Ann Clanton joins RINewsToday as writer of “Speak up…” series

Ann Clanton, well known writer in Rhode Island, will be writing a series of articles profiling women and men of color for RINewsToday.

This series is part of an ongoing focus which includes Black history features – and is part of the Google News Initiative.
