50 African American Blogs for Black Men

Harlem Renaissance - Langston Hughes et. alThe Black Man Survival Guide and the The AfroBlog are founded on the principles of building community and sharing information to help us all prosper collectively.  To do that we share as much information as we can through the articles we write, the questions we answer and the article contributions from our wonderful guest authors.  We also try to share information about other websites that we think will be useful.  We feel that the only way to come up as a people is to share our knowledge and point brothers and sisters to answers and solutions.  In that spirit, this blog post highlights some of the best African American blogs on the web that consistently create posts to inspire, educate and uplift black men and the black community.

Many of the African American bloggers listed have already been recognized within the blogosphere for their good works. Some are 2010 Weblog Award winners and some are listed in Links to websites for black men.  Others are not as well known, but their words are just as powerful and inspiring.  In either case, all the blogs are a good read and if you haven’t discovered them you may want to check them out. 

For my fellow bloggers: if you would like to submit a guest post, or would like to feature a post from The AfroBlog on your site, please drop me a line.

Note1:  the blogs listed here focus on African American issues with most of their posts related to:

a) One or more of the key areas of the The Black Man Survival Guide: Food, Shelter, Clothing, Health, Love and Money;  or

b) One of our Featured Content areas: Beauty, Education, Fatherhood, Inspiration, Knowledge and Wisdom

For that reason you probably won’t see your favorite hip hop, gossip, celebrity or fashion blog.  Those blogs are certainly valuable and many are very well written they are just not for this particular post.   Hopefully there will be future posts to cover other blog categories. 

Note 2: If your blog isn’t listed here, please add it in the comments so we can build a bigger, better list. 

Note 3: If you are reading this post, you’ve already found The AfroBlog and as the new kids in the blogosphere I sincerely thank you. 

Note 4: If your blog is listed here, leave a comment below or email me to share your thoughts.
