Netflix Releases Luke Cage (of Marvel Comics) Movie Trailer. I think the bald cut and hoodie, rather than the golden headband and 'fro, brings a nice contemporary touch to Luke Cage. In addition to cleaning of the street of Harlem, maybe Cage will go after rogue cops hell bend on shooting similarly garbed brothers.... that be fun.

What if you were new to your town and were looking for black-owned newspapers (3), bookstores (4), or even a book club (5) to join? Maybe you’re a blogophile and you want to visit every African-American blog publisher on the internet. Or maybe you’re an African-American blog publisher and you’d like to include your blog in the AALBC blog database (6). Where would you go to find that information?

It is good to see this sort of thing. We really must depend upon ourselves to celebrate and support each other. Here is a list of Bloggers I've compiled: http://aalbc.com/blogs/ I plan to add a bit of code to remove Blogs that become in active.

I noticed your list skews heavily female. Why do you think that is?
Need some amazing blogs to read? Look no further! Click here for a list of over 200 Black bloggers.
