New AfroSpear Member: Black Women, Blow The Trumpet

The AfroSpear is finding more and more voices from powerful women of color. Recently, Lisa Vasquez, owner of the 'Black Women, Blow the Trumpet' blog (BBR #107) joined the AfroSpear. Lisa's vision is to create more than a blog ... she wants an online think tank that serves as a cyber-roundtable where Black women identify, organize and strategize solutions for societal issues that impact the empowerment of Black women.

Lisa began blogging in March 2008. When seeking admission to the AfroSpear, Lisa wrote, "I think the purpose of AfroSpear is to support and encourage the literary work of bloggers of the African disapora. I would contribute to the purpose by making valued contributions to fostering community and supporting the literary work of my brothers and sisters."

It is difficult to describe the wealth of information, role models, spiritual praise and other dialogue that uplifts the souls of Black women to be found on this blog. Frankly, I'm honored that this sister applied for membership into the AfroSpear.

Share your thoughts on this new AfroSpear blogger. Have you checked out her blog yet?
