From Silver Spring to Stockholm, Black Bloggers Descend On Denver For The Democratic National Convention

African American Political Pundit blogging team for Democratic National Convention includes award winning Black Women in Europe blogger from Sweden.

(Silver Spring, MD) August 21, 2008 ??? LN Rock, editor and writer of the wildly popular African American Political Pundit (AAPP), and African American Opinion (AAO), blogs is one of a select few Black bloggers credentialed to cover the historic 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver. Adrianne George who writes the award winning Black Women in Europe Blog (BWIE), in Sweden will be part of LN Rock???s team.

The African American Political Pundit and African American Opinion blogs discuss political issues relevant to the African American community in a no nonsense manner. He hosts a radio show and is a regular guest on National Public Radio???s Blogger Roundtable. The Washington Post called African American Political Pundit “a must go to site“.

African American Political Pundit has been cited by CNN, NPR, Politico, The Huffington Post, and other media outlets, including PBS On-Line News Hour, Politico.com, and the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

“Being part of the contingent of black bloggers from across America and Europe provides a unique of opportunity to tell this historic story from our unique African American bloggers perspective. I’m elated that Adrianne George, an Award Winning Blogger from the blog Black Women In Europe has agreed to join in the effort to tell this story to an international audience, says AAPP”.

“Although I am personally disappointed that the DNCC staff have shown an inability or unwillingness to see the importance of including black bloggers in the state bloggers pool, I’m confident that the black “general bloggers” will stand in the gap, even though their seems to be intentional blogger segregation”, he adds.

The award winning Black Women in Europe Blog will be part of the AAPP blogging team at the Democratic National Convention. Edited and written by Adrianne George, a Washington, DC native who lives in Sweden, the Black Women in Europe Blog covers the lives and accomplishments of Black Women living and thriving in Europe as well as social and other issues relevant to Blacks in Europe.

???When LN Rock invited me to join his blogging team in Denver I was naturally excited but also honoured and moved to tears. This Democratic Convention is without question the most important political event of my generation???, says Adrianne George.

  1. Why is the DNCC staff unwilling to include black bloggers? Haven't they gotten over being segregationists? I am appalled.

  2. The 150 or so credentialed blogs were allowed to bring a team of up to 4 people and through that the number of Black bloggers was higher than originally anticipated. Not every blog had 4 people with them, so I do not know the total number of bloggers on the ground, but I saw at least 20 Black bloggers. If I saw 20 it is quite possible that there were more.
