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!
Today marks the 100th Anniversary of the Hon. Marcus Mosiah Garvey's first visit to New York, March 23, 1916. We speak to the Hon. Senghor Jawara Baye; President General of the UNIA-ACL, about the call to all African Diaspora people to pour libations today at sunset. https://www.facebook.com/blackstarlion9
