The first thing I ever published, if truth be told, was a book of poems I wrote in my idle hours as a teenage schooler! But somehow that didn’t survive so I got nothing to show from those many creative hours.
What is irrefutable is the fact that I published the UK’s first Black internet site in October 1994 although I credited it from February 1995, on or around February 6, Bob Marley’s birthday.
[UPDATE: March 14, 2009 at 09:02] Actually, We didn’t call ourselves ‘Black’: that was the mainstream media’s title for us. We actually marketed ourselves as a ‘street culture magazine’. But they went with what they thought best. The publicity certainly helped!
I didn’t realise at the time that I was the first to do this since I was working in the dark about my directions and was powered by cheer love and determination.
Since then I have published several other websites. These include:-
There are many more sites to come. Watch this space!
