Dear Mzansi,

I read you weblog! I am the editor of AfricaNews. AfricaNews is a digital newsletter and website that aims at giving a more balanced view of Africa. For our newsletter and website in English (which we are launching next week) we are looking for contributors to write the so-called AfricaDiary. The AfricaDiary must tell something about your daily live: it can be very broad: a conversation you had, a party you went to where something happened you were shocked /surprised about, an event you visited. Make it vivid and bring your own emotions/ideas into the story (use I).

The AfricaDiary has a prominent spot in the newsletter. We can include a link to your weblog.

Per day about 6.000 people visit our website and a couple of thousand people have a subscription to our weekly digital newsletter (which is for free). Till now we only published in Dutch, from the end of this month we will publish in English as well, which will make to readership far bigger.

Please have a look at the following links the see our website. The website is still very much under construction.
http://www.afrikanieuws.nl/ and www.africa-news.net
Link to two of the newsletters:

Please let me know if you are interested in contributing,

Hope to hear from you,


Kind regards,

Fascinating analysis, Ret - and two comments on that:

1.) Isn't communication by music an intrinsic part of humanity? The jumping-off point to me is good ol' Willy S - "If music be the food of love ..." Consider troubadours in Europe during the Middle Ages - didn't they serve a similar purpose, to communicate and to educate to mostly illiterate populations by linking words and meanings with rhythm and melody?

2.) Your post here does remind me of one of the most profound concerts I've ever attended, a few years back. A performance called We Must Eat Our Suckers With The Wrappers On, which, of course, communicates stories of AIDS in South Africa.

"Isn't communication by music an intrinsic part of humanity."
--------------------
Yes, it is, and since the first person stood up on two legs and said, "where the hell am I?" humanity as a whole has been enamoured with this sound we call music.

When Carter and NASA wanted to talk to aliens, they sent The Beatles and Mozart into space.

It is the extent and the style that are different (naturally so) across the colour line. But that colour line isn't in chalk (unfortunately).

Good to see you out here, my friend.

My friend, I will always visit the sites you write for!

Can a music education student teach only music history in the schools upon completion of a BME?
I am a music education student and really enjoy music history, or as it is now known as musicology. I want to know can I teach only Music History in the public schools (Or be a clinican) to the public schools in Music History?. How can I go about this?. I would appreciate advice from a music teacher in the public school system or other music teachers. No jokes, serious only please. Thank you.

Yes... it seems that the media is very biased to their own way of thinking and hasn't improved since you wrote this article.

After reading EB's comment (Kudos for putting that truth out there.) I wonder if the answer to getting students to dive deeper into resources is to use wikipedia as a starting point and a platform to dive deeper from?

So what conditions would favour such an ability? If non-blacks underwent the same conditions, could they too sing and dance (well)? In reality, do such conditions exist more for blacks and less for non-blacks
