SORT BY Relevancy
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!

And we know that lasting change is difficult—many of our habits are deeply ingrained, and certain core personality attributes may be immutable. But many more things can be changed. It's never too late, and with effort and determination, it is possible to be the person you want to be.
