Pink and Black was created by Anna Taylor. She created the website when she had just graduated high school and hoped to pursue a career in journalism upon her college graduation. Anna wanted to start a blog about topics that she could relate to and that interested her. She began writing and after gaining little readership and not having enough time to write regularly for her website, she opened the site up to other aspiring journalists and writers that shared her same passions. These students joined as contributing writers, guest bloggers or interns. The website’s readership soon started to grow.
Today, the website is fully staffed and updates are constantly being made as it is still in its early stages.
Pink and Black relaunched on January 21, 2013.

It aims to create a positive and informative dialogue with its readers. Additionally, Pink and Black strives to create a safe and professional environment for young aspiring journalists to learn and improve their craft.
