The AfroSpear is a national and international group of Black self-determination bloggers collectively using their blogs and influence to improve the lives of Blacks politically, socially, economically, culturally, and even spiritually. AfroSpear bloggers use their blogs and their voices in various different ways, depending upon their expertise and preferences, to promote the goals of the AfroSpear.
The AfroSpear maintains a highly credible and effective advocacy voice for Black people that is heard loudly, clearly and influentially throughout the Diaspora. The AfroSpear does not discriminate on the basis of national origin, religion, gender, sexual preference, native language, ethnicity or disability, but its members are Black bloggers who are prepared and determined to consistently use their AfroSpear blogs and their voices in a collaborative AfroSpear effort to pursue the political, economic, social, cultural and even spiritual improvement of the lives of Black people throughout the Diaspora.
The AfroSpear only moves on a campaign when there is a unanimous agreement. In lieu of a unanimous agreement, offshoot efforts, such as the Afrosphere Action Coalition come together to take action on pressing issues. The AAC has come together for campaigns such as the Jena 6 March in 2007, and the 'Hillary Concede Now' campaign in 2008 to name a few.
The Afrosphere/AfroSpear has been cited 93 times in the media from 2007- to early 2008. A special blog dedicated to keeping track of these references.
