Hey fellow bloggers and followers, I would like to talk to you on a personal level, no poetry.
My name is Antwane, and I’m the co-owner, but also the founder of A Melanin Galaxy.
It has been 3 years since this website has been up and I’m sorry that the website has not been active as it should be.
These past 3 years has been pretty hectic for me. I have personally been struggling with my mental and physical health; thus, I haven’t been consistently blogging and posting.
My Poetry had become very dark and depressing, as if I had entered the dark void in my own galaxy.
Life took a sudden turn, and as a young man it was hard to cope. I found music through those dark times. I learned how to play the guitar (Still have years to go, but I learned how to play).
The co-owner and I are still very young, me being 24 and her being 18. So, you can say we are still are trying to figure out life as well.
Due to it only being us two we will not be blogging art everyday ( I will be posting songs daily as a goal for myself though). Starting next week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 9pm we will be posting poetry, art, live performances, videos etc.
A Melanin Galaxy is and will be the hub for Afrocentric art and poetry. That’s the plan and we are working towards that goal. While she and I are both multitalented, we specialize in poetry and are currently looking for a team to add more diverse content to the site.
Thank you to the people that have been here since day one, I greatly appreciate you.
We have a lot in stored this year and expect to take bigger steps to reaching our goals.
Love and peace.
P.S. we might have a surprises for as well 😉
