I know my blogroll is getting more and more full, but I just to make you all aware of the new additions to the Uppity Negro Network family. I actually ran across these blogs as a result of me perusing the finalists for the 2008 Black Weblog Awards. I didn’t make it, but no thang but a chicken wang, I’m still more than thankful for the dedicated readers that I have. But make sure to go check out the finalists and go ahead and vote for them.
These are the two new ones that I ran across that fit my tastes enough to make it to the list on the right:
- Keeping Up With the Huxtables I mean come on now, for someone who almost quote line for line the Cosby Show, did you really think I was going to let this one get away from me. Furthermore it’s my kind of carrying on. And she’s up for the “Best New Blog Award”.
- Curious Tribe Well, I was curious, so I went to go check it out. They had sections about culture (from the hip hop kind) music and art. And I was sold when I saw they had some NOLA connections, and were more or less my age. And they’re up in two categories “Best Group Blog” and “Best Culture Blog.”
- I don’t think I gave a proper shout out to The Kitchen Table which is a dialogue between Dr. Melissa Harris-Lacewell of Princeton University and The Root fame and Dr. Yolanda Pierce who (perhaps, I don’t everything seems a bit upside down right now, not really diggin’ school right now) I may get to see at Princeton Theological Seminary.
So, you know the deal, show ’em some love and check ’em out. And don’t forget to check out my latest posts (this is really for the people that don’t feel like scrolling down on the home page–lazy m’fers, lol.)
Keep it uppity and keep it truthfully radical, JLL
