The AfroSphere is making headlines, and ooVoo is keeping us connected.


When Francis Holland invited me to join the AfroSpear group of black bloggers I had no idea I was joining a movement.Right away I was plugged into a group of progressive bloggers whose mission was to highlight the issues that are near and dear to our community.


In the wake of the Jena 6 march the AfroSphere has come to the attention of the mainstream media.  The lastest coverage of the AfroSphere is in the New Republic.  So what does this mean?  One possible answer is that more people will read AfroSphere blogs to learn what the main stream media doesn’t deem newsworthy.  Another possible outcome will be that more black people will establish blogs. 


What I do know for sure is that the power of bloggers is growing daily and as the pen has always been mightier than the sword, the keyboard may in fact be the biggest slayer of them all.

  1. I love it! The AfroSphere. Where are folks from, in general? Or, is it nationwide? Where did it start. Well, I am from ooVoo and I just wanted to make sure your AfroSphere bloggers who have Macs have access to the Mac version of the Software to make sure that nobody is left behind just because they choose Apple.

    To be honest, I don’t know if the AfroSphere bloggers would be interested, but I think ooVoo would love to chat with you guys… let me know, okay?

  2. Chris no worries! The AfroSpear is a group of bloggers in the afrosphere that have come together because we share the same goals. Any blogger in the afrosphere is eligible for membership in the AfroSpear! Thanks for your additional email address. I’ll resend the email I sent you from the other day, now!
