In Response To: Connecting with Global Voices ()
This site is revolutionary! Global Voices; what a concept.
If there ever was a reason for blogs and pods, this organization has subscribed a purpose for them. Clueing cultures in on what's going on throughout the diaspora and the world. I love reading and hearing from citizens from all over about what's going on in their communities.
This effectively eliminates the need or reliance upon the ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and PBS networks for information. I'm down with that.
Now I have an understanding why my own blogs have missed the mark. I didn't consider the entire planet and my relationship and responsibility to it.
Now, thanks to DNA, African Ancestored genealogists and family historian can claim heritages in many parts of the world. For some, this will be in the abstract. For others, this will inspire a research into the relevant cultures. Some will take in an historical perspective; some will investigate the current political and social atmosphere. For the latter, 'Global Voices' with supply a mother-lode of insight.
In the coming days, weeks, and months I will be thinking and writing on this subject. I know it's connected to genealogy; and I'm sure there's others in the AfriGeneas community with thoughts and words on this exciting topic. Let's hear it!
