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:

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 Sadly three of the 6 sites mention (the top 5 plus an honorable mention) are no longer active.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.


:hello: @aalbc ... Welcome Welcome Welcome !!! ... :wave:

Thanks for checking in again and posting! :)

Your name / site was so familiar, and I had to do a bit of searching (@ destee.com of course) to find that you have been a Member for awhile, and your site has been mentioned often here. If my search is correct, you / your site was first introduced to us by author @Delores Thornton years ago! Yes, it jogged my memory and it is good your effort is still among the living out here on the Internet. You are right, so many have died. It's always been a concern of mine, losing so many great black sites. I have a thread on it here : Black Web Sites That Have Died ... :( ... but after 20+ years of doing this, I suppose deaths are to be expected - though it was an issue long before we got this old.

It is not easy to maintain a site for a long time so my hat is off to you .... :toast1:

I have joined https://aalbc.com and I encourage everyone to do the same.

I read the thread highlighting destee.com and it was a nice walk down memory lane, reading that kindness again. Thanks for sharing it.

Much Love and Peace.

:heart:

Hi, Queenie. Love your posts. Even though I don't you, you must be some kind of remarkable and lovely person. Lets keep in touch.
It's okay to admire otherz, but first, love self. ELEVATE your self-image by having a healthy love & respect for yourself. ✍
1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
