André D. Singleton is a respected social justice, civil rights, and human rights activist, a multi-disciplined artist, dancer, the founder of the Brohogany blog, and the co-creator of The Very Black Project.
The Very Black Project is a meaningful conversation that is truly about life in the contemporary African diaspora. Singleton's best friend and co-creator Justin Fulton and are like Aime Cesaire, and James Baldwin meets Willie Smith and Patrick Kelly. They encourage others of African descent all over the world to engage with each other by simply using the hashtag #veryblack. It’s beautiful and powerful to see all the things one considers Black from every corner of the world. Essentially, it’s a call to action. And the action is to love ourselves and each other in the postmodern world deeply, openly, and unapologetically.
