THE SOULTOWN is a virtual city that lives in a digital and print magazine format.
"In 2007, I made a promise to my ancestors while standing in Les Maison des Esclaves (the House of Slaves) on Goree Island; off the coast of Dakar, Senegal; West Africa.
I could feel the spirits of my ancestors hovering over me -- as I stood in the same place where they were kept against their will -- after being stolen from their native land.
As my eyes welled with tears, I whispered a promise. I promised them that I would discover a way to tell their stories to their great, great, great, great, great-grandchildren -- to educate them about their triumphs and their struggles.
The Soultown Digital & Print Magazine is the manifestations of the promise.
The Sankofa Vow is the last word in each issue of The Soultown Magazine. Without fear or favor,
I share the most intimate thoughts from the perspective of an African-American female,
who is also a descendant of a slave.
It is comprised of contributing artists, writers, businesses, and amazing people who help to immortalize the stories of their communities to implore positive progress.
