Happy New Year! I am so excited about all that lies ahead for 2010. I’ve got some pretty cool stories in the works to provide more inspiration and visibility of people of color outdoors, as well as some new partnerships to help make it easy for people to get outside.
In 2009, Outdoor Afro was born as a simple Blogger blog and has since been transformed using WordPress and Facebook. The experience of developing the site has opened up a new universe of possibilities for many. To discuss and participate in the outdoors is simply who I am, and it is a rare gift to find work that is so fun, it feels like play. I am tremendously grateful for all the people who have passionately supported this project from the start, which genuinely strives to make a positive difference in the lives of people through the outdoors.
Thank you, and I wish each of you the very best for 2010!
