Outdoor Afro Blog Carnival!
Welcome to the Inaugural Edition of the Outdoor Afro Blog Carnival!
Wooo hooo….confetti falls…
So what is a Blog Carnival anyway? Well, I learned it is a terrific way to spread your blog wings into new topics, while connecting with more people. And that’s all I needed to know before signing up! But I also recognized the term ‘carnival’ has a cultural meaning for some that is different than the experience of a spin on the ol’ ferris wheel. So I decided to honor the festive connotation of another kind of Carnival with this image:
NOT a Ferris Wheel!
But this carnival you are reading now (assuming you are not still staring the picture above) is actually a sampling of topics near and dear to the Outdoor Afro community: youth, environment, and getting outdoors. Each carnival contributor offers fresh and insightful views around these topics, and a window into their larger body of digital or academic work. I hope you’ll visit each of the contributor’s sites and become fans.
