The Militant Negro


Illustration and title Trademark of The Militant Negro.

On the last Thursday of each month Thursday Thoughts will focus on one of the blogs I read and gain inspiration from.  Many of you may already know and read these blogs, but I wanted to dedicate this space to shine a little light on their work and signpost their blogs, so others may share the love.

For my first visit and feature of 2018 I am heading over to The Militant Negro, who is one of the shining lights of this community. Its author, JB, dedicates his writing and blog to fighting the oppression and injustice taking place in the world. He is also a collector and spends his days trawling the internet to find the best blogs, writing, poetry, music, art, you name it, and bring it all into one place.

The Militant Negro is one my first ports of call at the start of the day and more so if I am weary and lacking inspiration. My favoured posts of JB are his monthly roundups where he highlights everything you need to know about the month, its symbols, observances, celebrations and festivals. Who would have known today is Opposite Day, where everything you do, say and hear are exactly the opposite. I am not writing this post and you are not reading it. Have a look at January as there are still some weird and wonderful days to celebrate. National Clock Punching Day looks a good one.

For those of you with faint hearts or of a nervous disposition be warned, JB is someone who tells it as it is. As he says, “when a man speaks the truth with No concern for consequences, He becomes a great man.”  His writing never fails to leave me with a smile or spending five minutes screaming at the computer screen.

Please pay JB and The Militant Negro a visit and give some thanks for the excellent and unselfish work he does to promote art and the work of many bloggers in the Worstpress  community. You will not be disappointed.



He is one of the best!!!
