    EDC Creations and The Sankofa Literary Society will host 28 days of
    Black History! This spectacular ONLINE event will be the first of
    its kind! An entire month long celebration brought to the world via
    the Internet and modern technology. You can meet today's brightest
    stars from the comfort of your own home!

    Each day of February, 2008 there will be a featured day to discuss
    Everything About People of Color! Celebrating our past, future, and
    the life changing successes we are creating NOW. Daily we will host
    noon-day radio chats, blog chat tours, and all day chat-room visits
    with readers, video blogging, and e-workshops. Each night there will
    be exclusive private chats with authors and book clubs on the phone
    chat line, as well as public panel discussions on the radio. All
    panel discussions will be recorded and streamed to an open SLS site
    for the world to hear and take part in. Society will be able to view
    our community leaders, literature, music, and arts in an entirely
    new light, at the SLS Black History Site!

    We are asking people in the community to take part in this event
    too! We want readers and book lovers around the world to let their
