Culture is defined by Merriam-Webster as the act of developing intellectual and moral faculties. The Burton Wire endeavors to aid this development by highlighting black cultural production throughout the African Diaspora. The global culture created by those with shared ancestry, stories, struggle and triumph will be curated for TBWs, who understand that the act of developing intellectual and moral faculties includes those who are often excluded from the cultural domain. The Burton Wire brings you culture as traditionally defined (food, fashion, music, art, film) and culture that is non-traditional (gaming, comics, geek) in an effort to highlight the presence and importance of the African Diaspora in all things cultural.
