Black History Month

This blog isn't updated much anymore, and in fact hasn't been updated since July of 2014, but that doesn't mean it isn't full of great reading.

The Angry Black Woman

This blog was created to address the "angry black woman" stereotype. And you know how I love the idea of women embracing their anger. Not that this blog did it for me.

Anyway, it's full of amazing writers who are black women including the incredible karnythia. If you like the blog, there's also a great Twitter account that can help you keep up with all the blog's contributors.

A big part of what's great about this blog is just the conversations that happen in the comments. These are encouraged by contributors who would post topics and ask questions for people to respond to. For example, take a look at "Black Women, Violence, Or Why is Our Pain Funny to You?" It's a short post but with all kinds of different perspectives in the comments. Plus some people missing the point and getting torn into by karnythia.
