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!

Ron Moultrie Saunders -- Photography
Ron Moultrie Saunders creates photograms: photographs that are made without the use of a camera. This 19th Century process has an immediacy, rawness and truth that is not found in images created with a camera. Ron layers natural and man-made elements such as water, plants and rope on the surface of silver-based photographic paper. The paper is exposed to light from an enlarger to create a shadowy silhouette image. Then, Ron lays other images on top of the photo paper and makes another exposure, which results in a collage effect.

Welcome to the Path Community blogradio program. Our mission is to help you explore and begin living your mission for life. We are committed to aligning and discovering the possibilities that exist as defined by Laurie Beth Jones in her best selling book - The Path. Our community is made of of people just like you, who believe we each have a divine purpose and path to that purpose. We connect in community to share stories, insights and ideas. This week, we are discussing the power of thankfulness. While the season lends itself to dialogue about being thankful, thankfulness is more than just a prayer spoken over turkey and cranberry sauce. It is a powerful force that is often the catalyst for answered prayer and elusive clarity and blessings. Join Coaches Kim Skaggs and Greg Reich as they discuss the power of thankfulness and how maintaining a thankful attitude can result in breakthrough and positive change in many areas of life.
In light of recent events that have shaken our FB literary community,BRPP Network Radio feels a responsibility to have at least one, if not a series of shows on the evil that is known as Plagiarism!!! If you are a writer, period, you have probably experienced and/or felt the cold hands of this evil touch you and we must ban together as a true community, as one, to bring awareness to this issue and to stop it! If one writer's heartfelt and creative words are stolen, then we have all suffered a huge lose and together we mourn, so together we must warn!!!
