"I believe the Afrospear's purpose is to not only inform our people, but to correct disinformation about African Americans and find common ground in which we can begin to solve the problems that retard our progress as a people. As a African American progressive blogger who is transgender as well, I have another perspective to bring to the table of issues that affect our African American family. I lecture and do seminars about transgender issues as well in addition to on TransGriot make the connections between our history and current events. I also want to show through my blog that African American transpeople like myself have much to offer our community and are as concerned about uplifting the race.as anyone else. I'd consider it a great honor to become part of this AfroSpear."
TransGriot is BBR #117. Monica's stated goal is to break into the BBR Top 100 in the next few months. I think that she will meet her goal based on the power of her posting. I encourage all villagers to check her out and welcome her to The AfroSpear!
