Ever wonder where Castle of our Skins and many other people interested in Black Classical music news, events, information, and other tidbits get their information? Glad you asked! One of our biggest sources is an almost daily blog run by an incredibly dedicated man named William J. Zick. The blog is a companion to a website that was started in 2000, just 13 years ago. While the website's full name is quite long, people refer to it as AfriClassical.com (which you can type into your URL address bar, and it will redirect you to the original website).
As you can see from the screenshot above, anyone can subscribe to the AfriClassical blog by entering a valid email address into the FeedBurner box. After doing so, you will get almost daily emails from AfriClassical with all sorts of wonderful information about Black history, Black people involved in Classical music, upcoming events, CD reviews, articles, recommendations, competitions, and more. Castle of our Skins definitely posts information in this blog, and we are super happy to receive such support from Mr. Zick. You can listen to a fascinating interview with him here! Additionally, you can follow AfriClassical on twitter using their handle @AfriClassical . Thanks, Mr. Zick and AfriClassical for being such a great source of Black information!
