Hey Los Angeles! Epic Thanks is coming to you straight from Tanzania this year. Epic Change is an organization that’s close to my heart. I’ve worked with them in the past to do pretty epic things, and this time? Things got a lot more epic.
Two children from Shepherd’s Jr. school in Tanzania, along with Mama Lucy are making their way out to Los Angeles. Thanks to miracle spurred on by Stacey and Sanjay’s wish to bring them overseas, we’ll have the amazing chance to meet a part of Shepherd’s Jr.
I’m too excited for words! But here’s the important information: if you are in Los Angeles next week Friday at 7:00pm, you should totally join us at the W Hollywood. You must register at this link: http://epicthanks-losangeles.eventbrite.com/.
I hope to see my LA family out there next week. Ciao!
Deep in the urban Los Angeles jungle, the woman behind Afrolicious is cooking up a master plan of total world transformation.
Okay, maybe it only seems like a mad scientist experiment to me but the premise is the same. I’m about to roll out a new version and direction for Afrolicious and I was wondering if you would like to get in behind the scenes. Currently, I’m looking for a few partners in awesomeness to help set this plan into motion. If you’re into digging up great stories on beautiful Brown people, and if you love creating media for Brown folx, you should get in touch!
For more information, shoot an email to info at afrolicious dot com tell me 1) where you live and 2) why you think Brown is Beautiful in as many words as you need. No resumes please! Looking forward to hearing from you!
Submissions for Kindred Magazine’s first issue are now closed, but I wanted to extend the biggest and warmest of thank yous to everyone who submitted their stories and images this round. Based on what I’ve read so far, the conversation is going to be epic.
Specifically, I want to shout out Arrianna Marie for manning the twitter account and Danielle Scruggs for providing the breathtaking photo seen above and used in promotions. Please support each of these women by visiting their blogs and following them on twitter.
So, what’s next? Well, now, we’ve got a pair of amazing writers working on the copy editing side of things. And we’re reaching out to designers to help assemble the magazine. We launch next year, January 2nd, 2012, so watch this space.
In the meantime, the Mambu Badu Photography Collective is seeking work for their second round of publication. Support another chance for Black women to tell their stories!
