Shades of Us is designed to address social issues affecting Africa, Africans and people of African descent, and because of that, we had a struggle defining how we wanted our platform to work. This is because we love entertainment here at Shades of Us; music, movies, poetry, dance, radio, television, production and all things entertainment. So we did any and everything and we were at sea for minute. This is especially because we didn’t know how to marry the serious stuff and entertainment.
But…we solved the problem!
Nothing says Shades of Us CANNOT be both; serious and light hearted. So, starting from today (August 1, 2017), our articles, stories and video logs would address the serious stuff and our podcast will provide you entertainment.
Having said that, we would love to announce our new show on the blog called SHADES OF US: THE REVIEW!
THE REVIEW is an entertainment show where we discuss songs or movies by black artists (African, American, European, and other artists of African descent). THE REVIEWwill focus on how aspects of each song or movie reflects issues in society and what can be learned generally from the song or movie. We will have facts about each song or movie, favorite and least favorite parts of the art and an avenue for you to request that we review a song.
THE REVIEW will come up every Tuesday and Thursday at 1pm on our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Google+).
Are you excited? Because we are dancing like fools!
Welcome to SHADES OF US: THE REVIEW.
