Hello everyone, I'm Troy Johnson and I run AALBC.com the largest, oldest, most frequently visited -- simply the baddest website dedicated to books written by, or about, Black people. :)

A couple of years ago someone posted on my discussion forum a listy of the Top 5 Discussion Forums. Destee was listed, deservedly as #1 (my site was #2). Sadly three of the 6 sites mention (the top 5 plus an honorable mention) are no longer active.

Over the last several years I've dropped my personal social media accounts and am focusing on participating on, Black owned, indie sites like Destee. The reality is either we use them or we lose them. I hope it is obvious that the likes of Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, will never, ever serve us.

Welcome Troy of AALBC, obviously we are glad to have you join us here on Destee.com. Furthermore, you've said a mouth full when uttering this;


"...Black owned, indie sites like Destee. The reality is either we use them or we lose them. I hope it is obvious that the likes of Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, will never, ever serve us."

thus Speaking truth to power...

Hello everyone :hello: ,

My name is Jenn,

I've been roaming cyberspace (since msn groups went the way of the west) searching for a spot to chill with like minded individuals.

I do believe I can now unpack my bags & relax. :10200:

I'm a passionate reader (more mystery & spy stuff) & I enjoy dabbling at writing, sewing, paint shop pro.

I am ecstatic to be here & look forward to engaging in conversations with everyone. :thumbsup:
