#PeakBlackness: Highlighting Awesome Moments In Black History
Peak Blackness is a photo blog that's dedicated to finding the single blackest moment in American history. Was it Al Sharpton hanging with James Brown, Sam Cooke and Muhammad Ali in the studio or Harriet Tubman doing the Wobble? A team of writers is working on narrowing it down - one image at a time.
Rembert Browne of Grantland, Ernest Wilkins of the Chicago Tribune, Cord Jefferson of Gawker, Jason Parham of Spook Magazine , Jenna Wortham of the New York Times, Issa “Awkward Black Girl” Rae are some of the contributors over at peakblackness.tumblr.com. Wilkins joined Vocalo's Morning AMp's podcast to discuss the blog and concepts of "Blackness" in American pop culture. Check it out and few of my favorite #peakblackness moments below. Check it out:
