Forty acres and one big digital mule: … Art McGee and the Black Radical Congress get some dap in this Village Voice article.

McGee says many African Americans came late to the Internet�but that they are there, especially in social settings, and just need to be organized. “There’s an unevenness to the Internet from the [black] activist standpoint,” he says. Now McGee hopes to pull the communities behind sites like and toward progressive politics.
