Welcome to February ABW readers. Already this month is making me angry, though less for public reasons than private. Still, there is a lot to look forward to, at least around here. One of those things is posts from a cavalcade of guest bloggers, some of whom you’ll see often, some who just contributed an essay. To start, I want to introduce you to the folks who you’ll see more than once. In no particular order, here are this month’s guest bloggers:
Naamen Gobert Tilahun is a writer/blogger based in San Francisco. He holds a B.A. in Creative Writing and has been writing about and discussing issues of race/gender/sexuality/class and all other oppressive hierarchical structures for a very long time now. He identifies as a post-structuralist and embraces the title of “another angry black man” because he knows he has a valid reason/right to be angry. He can be found at his personal mostly-writing blog, Words From The Center, Words From The Edge, and as one of the group bloggers on Feminist SF- The Blog!
Karnythia is a writer, a historian, and occasionally a loud mouth. In between raising hell and raising kids she usually manages to find time to contemplate the meaning of life as a black woman in America.
Steven Barnes is a fiction, television and movie writer. His career has spanned over 25 years and produced dozens of books and teleplays as well as nominations for the Hugo and Cable Ace awards. He blogs about his passions: writing, martial arts, writing (again), his family, race, and politics (to name a few).
Angry Black Bitch has been practicing the fine art of bitchitude since February 2005 and the Internet hasn’t been the same since. She blogs about politics, race, gender, and other things inescapable as a black woman in America.
Also look out for essays from authors ruminating on the subject of history and posts from yours truly and regular guest blogger nojojojo on our own history and pretty much anything that comes up.
Happy Black History Month, everyone!
