Short Description: 
an interview with writer momowilly.

on thursday, the 18th of june we are
pleased to have momowilly, author of the upcoming 'the momowilly
experience'!  based on the east coast, momo and her glorious afro
travel everywhere, spreading the word of her truth as she sees it.

from momo's myspace page:
"Provocative. Honest. Blunt. Hard-hitting. Audacious. momowilly’s
writing has been described as many things, but never boring.

An established poet, author, freelance journalist, and spoken word
artist, momowilly has consistently pushed boundaries with her work. As
the landscape of Black literature denigrated into redundant hip-hop
fiction and trashy erotica noir, momowilly appealed to those audiences

Ersatz Chats: The sight bits & sound “bites” of social networking

We spend so much time imitating communication; social networking sites do promote contact...sometimes as the end itself. But do they really promote connection, community, communion with another person? Is social networking a conversation without context? Was that great 20th century philosopher James Brown (a.k.a. The Godfather) presciently, prophetically on point...that we are a culture "talking loud and saying nothing"? Join Cecil Prescod and myself, Celeste Carey as we muse over the demise of face-to-face social interaction and blame social networking sites .
