This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the
African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and
theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in
the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of
expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of
art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and
their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true
revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion.
They are our true heroes. Ashay!
