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!

Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday May 28th at 9 pm EST as we dissect, debate, and discuss the secret that Black folks don't talk about ... Depression in our community.
One in ten Americans will be affected by some form of Depression during their lifetime, usually caused by a major life event such as divorce, unemployment, poor health, or a death in the family. And depression is fast becoming a worldwide issue for the health industry.
How does this affect Black America specifically? Well, it has been noted by researchers that those living in poverty, us, are two and a half times more likely to experience depression. Additionally, 90% of Black males who suffer from this condition seek no treatment. On top of that women are more likely to experience depression than men, so consequently that means that Black women are suffering the most from this ailment.
“I’ve tried to commit suicide over 15 times. I have the scars on my arms of wanting to kill myself and not even know why,” said 45-year-old Tracey Hairston, a member of the health center who has bipolar disorder.
A report published by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that poverty, parenting, racial and gender discrimination put Black women — particularly low-income Black women — at greater risk for major depressive disorder (MDD).
Now that we know the problem, let's talk solutions brothers and sisters.

One would think that Black Women who are Lesbians would be the last to discrimate, especially since we suffer discrimination for just being Black, for being a Black Woman and for being a Black Woman who is also a Lesbian. Discrimination within the Black Lesbian community if VERY much real and causes gaps and wedges in what should be a solid Sisterhood.
Join us as the Cast of Les' Talk and Members of NeoSoul Sistas of KC discuss discrimination within the Black Lesbian Community and discuss the upcoming documentary done by Nneka Onuorah!

Toya Graham, the mother caught on video smacking around her 16-year-old son during the Baltimore uprising was hailed by many as "Mother of the Year." Activist Michaela Angela Davis writes, "It's a sad day when a traumatized, terrorized, desperate mother beating and cursing her child becomes 'mom of the year.'
Is Toya Graham, this mother of six, a hero...or is she an abuser? Was this an act of love...or abuse? Was this tough love, or something else? Do black single mothers have a license to beat and brutalize their sons to prevent them from becoming a statistic?
What about the mothers who yank, slap, punch their little black boys, do they deserve praise for "keeping their boys in line"?
Jackie Credle, a mother of two, says she was once the angry mother raising a son. She now regrets beating her son. Jackie shares her story, raw, uncut, honest real talk on She Struts Radio, Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 6:30pm ET as we continue our month-long conversation about mothering.
