New AfroSpear Member: Notes of This Native Son

Cedric Shine created his progressive Black-owned & operated blog, Notes of This Native Son (BBR #591) in March 2008. Less than a month later he sought membership into The AfroSpear. However, AfroSpear guidelines call for a blog to exist for at least six months before we can consider it for membership.

Bro. Shine kept moving forward with his blog ... the six months passed ... and we're proud to welcome him as one of the newest members of The AfroSpear


Cedric wrote, "I think the purpose of the Afrospear is to network bloggers of color together to support a collective dialogue on issues that affect people of color. I also see it as way to cultivate leadership and ideas through online conversations about the state of our people. I feel that I will do that by not only contributing to my blog but being the voice that I have been on other blogs within the AfroSpear. I will continue to encourage our people to think objectively about our impact on society.

I blog every day and post several posts a day dealing with spirituality, music, politics and literary pieces that speak to the struggle and victories of people of color. I look forward to being a part of the AfroSpear."

Please take a moment to share your village voice with Cedric Shine. What are your thoughts about his blog ... or about the AfroSpear?

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
