2007 will see the commemoration of the end of the Transatlantic trade in African people. To mark this anniversary, I am seeking articles by writers and artists about the relationship between African Diasporic/Black history and artistic expression by people of African heritage. Click here to read the Poem, "The Blood", which explores these themes. It takes a few moments to load.

Please submit your article for consideration for my new website. This project is funded by Arts Council England. For more details, send an e-mail to
