The first rough draft of history

News, said Washington Post editor Phil Graham, is the “first rough draft of history.”  KQ has now completed its own first draft of a significant quarter-century chunk of Korean American history with the publication of it's 25th anniversary print edition issue earlier in 2022.  

KQ’s new digital archive of print-edition content published from 1997 through 2022, is coming online soon.  The archive will allow easy access for casual readers, scholars and researchers to access that “first rough draft” as seen through the KQ lens.   

The digital archive will allow readers to dig deeper with ease, whether you are perusing recipes or researching the National Security Law in South Korea.   

The free press is not free   

On Google, we think, you can look up anything.  But how real and reliable is that information?   

The KQ digital archive represents a newspaper with a wide range of perspectives, written with insight, and vetted for journalistic excellence.  Our local and national citizen journalists believe in this independent news project, and it shows.     

Development of the KQ digital archive is in process.  Please help us reach our goal of $15,000 to help us complete this important historical and journalistic project!  

Together, we will sustain our independent news and our community history.  
Thank you!
