April 9, 2016, Paul Robeson’s birthday, marks the 15th anniversary of SeeingBlack.com, a pioneering website for Black voices on arts, media and politics. We thank you for continuing to support us, even as we have faced challenges and new opportunities! Faithful users know that our recent posts have been links to the content on our radio show, “On The Ground,” which is broadcast on 89.3, WPFW Pacifica Radio in Washington, DC and archived permanently on our site, www.onthegroundshow.org. Because of the limited capacity of Esther Iverem’s volunteer operation, SeeingBlack.com and the radio website will be merged in the coming months. We had hoped to have this “construction” done in time to celebrate our anniversary with you. But, no luck. When we DO finish the construction, you will be able to access all of SeeingBlack.com again, it will be on a new platform and have more of it’s own content again. Though the Black online environment has evolved to be more populous and corporate since our 2001 debut, we see all around us proof positive of the need to still have a place for our unfettered voices.

A Luta Continua!
