You have arrived at one of the most exciting citizen journalism communities in cyberspace. Barutiwa.com developed from the old Barutiwa Newspaper (ISSN 1080-997x) that was published in Cincinnati, Ohio from 1992 to 1999. Barutiwa.com has been online since February 1999 and was highly active until the Spring of 2004. During this period Barutiwa.com emerged as the largest black owned online community in Cincinnati, Ohio offering its users free webmail and forums. From the Spring of 2004 to the Winter of 2010 Barutiwa.com was cybersquatted. In February 2010, the original owner, Baruti M. Kamau, re-acquired Barutiwa.com.|
The all new Barutiwa.com Online is a community of self-styled journalists and creative writers championing the values of free speech and a free press in all of its complexities.

The term "barutiwa" is derived from the name of its founder, Baruti Muhammad Kamau. Baruti is a Black African name meaning teacher(s). Thus "barutiwa" is Baruti's people or literally a group of knowledgeable, courageous people under a competent leader.
