TBW – A free thinking person who cares about the world, will not be categorized or boxed in by society or culture and is interested in issues and topics that defy stereotypes and conventional wisdom.
TheBurtonWire.com is the premiere online destination for people who think for themselves. This blog offers news from the African Diaspora, global culture that is produced by often overlooked populations and opinion that is informed and based on fact. Tired of the onslaught of websites and talking heads that regurgitate what people want to hear, TheBurtonWire.com is a publication that elevates news and perspectives that people need to hear. TheBurtonWire.com is for individual thinkers who understand that they are part of a larger collective. What is this collective? Free thinking people that care about the world, who will not be categorized or boxed in by society or culture and are interested in issues and topics that defy stereotypes and conventional wisdom. Readers of TheBurtonWire.com do not follow trends — they establish them or cast them away doing their thing instead of the “in thing.” TBWs live in cities throughout the world, engage in cultural production, problem solving, community activism and constantly make connections on and offline. They are more interested in what brings us together as opposed to what keeps us apart. TBWs are leaders, not followers and want to be the change that others demand from the sidelines. TheBurtonWire.com will bring voices from the margins to the center — offering fresh perspectives, compelling news from around the globe and creative culture. If you consider yourself a global citizen with a free mind and an indomitable spirit, then this site is for you.
