I received an email about African Path - a portal of African-centered news delivered in an engaging and interactive way.
Self-described as "an engaging mix of breaking news in Africa, blogs, thoughtful discussion and an international community calendar. African Path is geared towards connecting Africans across the world in informed dialogue that leads to progress and growth on the continent."
You can participate as a citizen journalist. To do so, you have to submit a copy of your resume (the Contact Us page gives more info about the many ways to get involved).
I'm still exploring the site, but it is good to see more forums like this that present information and news that is relevant to Africans, and yet gives us an opportunity to contribute and provide feedback in such a direct manner.
