From the Africana.com staff
After 6 years, Africana.com is shutting its doors on January 31, 2005. It's been an exciting and interesting ride, and we hope you've enjoyed it as much as we have. So…what now?
While Africana.com will be no more, many of the features that comprised Africana.com will be given a new home at AOL BlackVoices. We hope that you, our members and readers, will also make the move to AOL BlackVoices with us and enrich its community with your voices.
Moments to Remember, Black Facts and our archive of comics, columns and articles will be making the move. Unfortunately, you'll have to say goodbye to TalkBack and your Africana member profile. Open Source will be back, though in a different format, on AOL BlackVoices. And if you decide to join us at AOL BlackVoices, you'll be able to register with your Africana membername (i.e. your AOL/AIM Screen Name), keep your Africana.com identity, find your Africana.com friends--and make new ones.
Beyond your new future friends, you'll be getting lots more news, lots more views, and cutting-edge interactive features as the site continues to grow. Check out what's happening at AOL BlackVoices today--and there's much more in store for the future.
If you have a question about the merger or would like to share your thoughts, please do so here. We'd love to hear from you.
