    Here is an interesting website about Black Peruvian music:

    http://www.perunegro.org/

    Again exposing the African culture of South America, which many continue to insist doesn't exist!

    This is a very interesting link. You don't typically see black folks from Peru in the media.

    And you still won't! That is why the internet is shattering myths & stereotypes.

    There's so much information in Destee's threads about Black culture and history. Is there a way to compile all of the information into databases. Like book lists and resource list (links, etc). So if I want to know the social or political structure of Blacks in South America or the Caribbean, I could begin my research at Destee's library.

    Hello Brother TWashing ... have i welcomed you ?? ... Welcome ... :wave:

    The forum is organized in such a way, as that i hope it will be kinda easy to find stuff ... but you're right ... there's so much ... and we could have it better organized i suppose. The entire forum is already in a database, and is searchable to Premium Members. I'm sure being able to search the forum will make it easier to do the type of research you're speaking of.

    How about considering Becoming a Premium Member?

    This will help to insure that the all the information we currently have available will remain available, as well as allow you to search all of the posts / threads. Our costs are increasing daily and it's a challenge to meet these needs. We use lots of bandwidth to deliver to the many Members and Guests that read us.

    TWashing ... while you consider that ... please join us in voice / video chat now ... Brother OldSoul is teaching right now ... and it's great information that won't necessarily be found on the forum ... so c'mon in!

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Heyya Destee. I can hear oldsoul talking and I can see the chat. But I can't type anything. Now, I'm using an Apple computer, so that might be part of it.

    Destee, it was great hearing you talk. I know a bit of French and German that I'd love to practice. I saw 'anAfrican' knows a bit of those 2 languages as well.

    I'm lining up a job in the next month. But once that happens, I'll have a lot more time to keep expanding my social conciousness. So keep me in mind if you put together language lessons... And yep, I heard everything :)

    Talk to you.
