Celebrating Women in Literature!

Since the month of March celebrates Women and their achievements, AfroMadu will be celebrating Black Women and writing. Because we stress the importance of reading and self-empowerment through social issues and the world around us, Black women and their writing play an important role in the plight of our own truth telling. Throughout the month of March, authors and their writings will be featured in our Book Club tab. Get ready to read the great works of Black women! Happy March! Slide1

AfroMadu Exclusive!

A couple weeks ago, AfroMadu had the opportunity to interview an upcoming artist that resides in Philly. Although AfroMadu is not a music-based blog, Udini LaVoz was very special because his music and talent was BEYOND revolutionary. NOT only did Udini LaVoz grow up in Panama, but his musical talent includes spitting 16′s in both English and Spanish! We won’t give too much of the interview away, but listen to one of AfroMadu’s new favorite artist, Udini LaVoz. Don’t forget to tell us what you think!

AfroMadu Book Club!

Unknown-10

 

Meeting of the minds through the medium of literature.

 

School has ended for the semester, but why let your mind idle until September when you can expand it while interacting with other intellects like yourself? AfroMadu is starting a Book Club as a way to connect to our viewers through a isolated common interest. This is a forum just like the rest of our column so if you have book suggestion PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share. Send book suggestions to afromadu@gmail.com.
images-43
This is how it will work:
  • Each book is given two weeks for completion, if you need more time feel free to speak your peace.
  • The forum will be open throughout the duration of the two weeks in which I will make comments and you are more than free to make comments as well.
  • PLEASE NO SPOILER ALERTS!
  • Start all comments by stating how far in the book you have gotten, so nothing is ruined for our slower readers.
  • Book assignments will be announced a week in advance so you have time to get it. I will try my best to keep assignments limited to books that can be easily found in your local library.
Just an FYI this is an intellectual forum to expand our way of thinking so as we will read novels, “Urban Fiction”, such as Zane will be extremely scarce. I am extremely excited about this new venture and look forward to hearing from you all.
Our first selection will be Assata: An Autobiography, the forum for this book will open next Monday.

National Poetry Month Feature: Kofi Genfi

Kofi Genfi is a multi-talented artist who started his artistry through spoken word poetry and motivational talks. A historian in his own right, through his literary pieces he highlights the forgotten stories of the world, while transcending the often times marginalized groups that he delineates in his work. Kofi aspires to leave an indelible mark on the way in which we discuss race, gender and poverty through his literary work.

Genfi quickly fell in love with directing short films and videos giving life to his written works through visual representation. Genfi eloquently illustrates the lives of others with reverence and respect for people’s personal narratives and stories within their community. Kofi Genfi has an uncanny ability of making foreign stories relatable to all persons.  Genfi’s objective is to bring the world closer through written and visual art, showing us that all our destinies are interwoven.
