Hello and welcome to my blog, a continuous meditation on my perspective on things as a black American who is also pagan. I don’t claim to be an expert and can’t speak for anybody but myself, but I do feel that the “black pagan community” (hard to type that without laughing) is sorely underrepresented here in cyberspace, so I’m just doing my bit to remedy that situation somehow.
I’ve only encountered a handful of other black pagans in real life, but I know there are more of “us” out there. Probably scattered about in a sea of white if we circle/practice with others, maybe in the closet to our families who may not understand. I’m sure that many of us are solitaries, as I am.
We network and get a lot of our information on the net, so if this site should perchance turn into one of those places “we” gather to hear about and see and speak with other black pagans, that would be very cool with me.
In this blog I plan to talk a bit about myself and my own eclectic practice, review pagan-oriented books and movies, publish interviews with other black folks who identify as pagans and relate my (probable futile) experiences at forging some kind of real-world pagan community in the rural area I live in. I’m a former journalist accustomed to blathering, but since life is very busy these days I’m going to really only commit to updating once a week, on Mondays. So stop by sometime.
