Faces of Africa

After my BET rant this morning, I decided to go shopping at Barnes & Noble, and found two publications published by African Immigrants, that celebrate African culture and black beauty in all its array, JTON published by Joy Tongo, entertainment industry veteran, that brings news, fashion, and entertainment from the continent, yet is accessible to African American audience. http://jtonmagazine.com/index.asp. ARISE is a UK based African fashion and pop culture magazine.

Although we African Americans set the tone culturally, and politically for other people of colour, these publications show where we fall short.
