Born and raised St. Louis, Mo. on a healthy diet of news programming, pop culture, black history and “snark,” Danielle C. Belton—daughter of loving “regular folk” and wife of no one—examines the irreverent side of American life. Currently, the Editor-in-Chief of the leading black interest news site, The Root, Belton is best known as the former creator and writer of the award-winning pop culture-meets-politics blog The Black Snob. Since being promoted to lead The Root in 2016, the award-winning site’s traffic has grown month-over-month by more than 300 percent, now reaching around 10-to-12 million readers per month.
