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


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.

AAPP and BWIE are members of the AfroSpear group of Black bloggers. African American Political Pundit is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, College of Public and Community Service and holds a Masters degree in Education from Cambridge College, Cambridge, MA. Black Women in Europe is a graduate of the University of the District of Columbia and holds a Masters degree in Public Communications from America University, Washington, DC and a Masters degree in Management from Boston University, Brussels, Belgium.

Brother’s support of the Vienna Declaration from the 1st Black European Women’s Congress

I must say that the support from my brothers of the Vienna Declaration has moved me. Villager, Asabanga, and AAPP have all given their support. Here’s a note from Eddie:

Adrianne, I wish to do more than congratulate the Black European Women Congress. Your recommendations to the European Union are powerful and revolutionary. I am also proud of the span of the sisters’ network overseas.  Although we are separated geographically, we have another powerful voice in the international arena, and that gives us more power, collectively.

In the past, when we found it impossible to break the silence of the US media, we took our stories overseas and sisters and brothers took up our cause and published our stories in the European media. When we engaged in phone-in campaigns, it was the phone calls from our European brothers and sisters that had the greatest impact.

When we finalize our ties with Africa, South and Central America, and the isles, we will have come full circle with the African Diaspora. We will no longer need white intermediaries to convey for us what we can communicate amongst ourselves.

More power to the Black European Women Congress. I look forward to the day when we will speak with one voice from around the globe.

Sincerely,
Eddie Griffin

And here’s what the African American Political Pundit said so concisely:

Go Black European Women’s Congress, I love it! Powerful work coming out of of Europe.
