I have moved my blog to http://afrocentriqueaz.blogspot.com/ but for those who have followed this blog for my Black History posts, I wanted to give you an incentive to go to my other blog. If you don’t use Blogger or Google+ you can still follow my blog via email. Below is a synopsis of what I plan to post this year. I hope you will join me on my other blog to read the actual posts. :-)
Black History Month begins tomorrow! This year I am going to focus on artistic periods in modern Black history.The most known are the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and the Black Arts Movement of the 60s and 70s. I may also look at what I call the Brookyn Renaissance of the late 80s and early 90s if I can find enough information on it.
I covered quite a few of the poets of the Harlem Renaissance and Black Arts Movement last year for National Poetry Month and will do a lot more of the poets this year in April so the entries this month will be all the other types of artists associated with these eras.
