My operation ONLI STUDIOS is looking for a few brilliant writers who can take direction.

This is fantastic. The growing Black Age of Comics movement offers serious opportunities for talented, reliable professional writers and editors.

We have been hosting annual events and publishing indie products since 1993.  Keep in mind Comic books, graphic novels and event animation are from of literature.

Fill in that space were assumptions takes place

So I can move with ease

And erase the vision that never existed

See our minds assume the worst

All we can do is trust that our affection

Is what you love the most

i've been deranged for far too long

coz when the peace is done

then the faeces start.

i wake and i bake

when the sun is strong,

making babies on the shit i started.

look at the shit i started.

there's a spider in my house,

coz when you're all alone

there's always something.

Gimme my, gimme my green, gimme my gold and green :)


new music: bólátitó - gold & green

Waking up with a story coming through me that needs to be told. As I close my eyes to rest a little more, the words and melody heard in my head persists, and so I pick up pen and paper, faithful to this energy and I write.

@felice I thought your article was very poignant. Being from Texas, I've only met a handful of Afro-Latinas my whole life. So, it's interesting to read about a black experience that's a bit alternative to my own.

Hey Y'all!  I just joined Afropunk and I'm trying to get my social on.

I'm a recent Columbia University grad and do freelance writing for a few publications.  Check out my article on Blacktinas and let me know what you think: Peace!

Hey folks, my blog is about growing up black, being the rare native Brooklynite (a unicorn!), and the changing landscape of NY life. If you have an essay that fits the blog's theme, I'm open to "hosting" other writers/bloggers. Currently my audience is at about 1000.
