Note: you do not need a paypal account to donate any amount of money to support this website. Any and all donations are appreicated. At present I  am running  two websites africanafrican.com & negroartist.com . Both websites are free of charge and have millions of visits per year. The problem (perhaps less of a problem than a cost) I am having is that the websites have become so popular that I have been forced to go to a dedicated server which will cost me over $2000/year. My websites are dedicated to African and African American history and contain millions of images, texts, videos and other material. I have added artists free of charge to my website so that they have a voice and place on the net. I have spent the last 10 years building and growing this site. I am an unemployed engineer and the reason this is relevant is because this is what keeps me going... this is what keeps me sane. It gives me a purpose. I would hate to lose it or take it down due to success... it would be devastating.

My work has a powerful impact not only on the people that I work with directly, but also on the world as a whole. I have seen my traffic from Europe, Africa, Asia and Middle East explode in the last couple years and I hope I can continue to grow. I am at the point where I am  completely reliant on charitable donations in order to be able to continue to provide my services. Any amount you can share will be greatly appreciated and put to good use right here at home as well as thoughout the world.  email me if you have any questions.


This section of the website is dedicated to the artists that made Detroit their home. I will be expanding this portion of the site and revise images as I find time. Many of these artist have long been ignored by critics, scholars and the mainstream media. It is about time that these legendary African American Detroit artists get their due. Please see my other artists portion of the site for some the modern Detroit Artists like the beautifully talented Gilda Snowden.
