THE BRIDGE is a newspaper and cultural information piece for Black Millennials in Washington, DC. Our MISSION is to bring the youth and creative culture forward so that all are included and represented in DC’s changing landscape.

We are a production and research center, where we assess and contribute to contemporary culture. Our findings are published digitally and as a collectible manual for freedom, research, and creativity, printed monthly.

Founded in Washington DC in 2016, THE BRIDGE is edited by Claudia Watts and art directed by Lafayette Barnes.

THE BRIDGE platform is designed and engineered by CAANDORLABS in collaboration with BAKARI IBRAHIM & MOSS BELKASSAM.

THE BRIDGE is headquartered in Southeast DC on MLK Blvd.
