A Retrospective Review of Afrocentricity Unleashed – 2012

afrounleashed picAfrocentricity unleashed would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all our followers, readers, friends, fans, retweeters, colleagues, commenters, critics and everyone who has connected with us at one point or the other in 2012.

The road to perfection is not without its “speed-breakers”, “sleeping policemen”, “potholes” and other kinds of inhibitions and inhibitors; but it also comes with its essential lessons which are learnt along this path.

Please keep your support coming since we simply CANNOT thrive without it. Our agenda, mission and vision statements have not changed i.e showing Africa, Africans, Afrocarribeans and people of African heritage in a good light, celebrating diversity in different endeavours of art, as well as being constructive critics of anything African veering off mark! We earnestly look forward to evolving more next year with newer and more exciting articles, reviews, interviews, blogs and news at your disposal.

Enjoy the slide show below showing a statistical analysis of our achievement in 2012

Many thanks to all and sundry, and do have a prosperous and productive 2013!

See you there 🙂

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.

Condolences to Connecticut!

We are not going to make a notorious person popular, so there will be no mention of the perpetrator of this heinous act. However, we cannot fail to mention the dreams buried, the aspirations vapourized, the hearts crushed and the sea of tears shed over this sad, very sad incident not only for Connecticut, not only for America, but for the whole world!

…And may the innocent souls of the 20 children and 6 adults rest in peace.
