I am in total disagreement with your comments. Another format is needed for these discussions!

I think your format needs another group. This is for collectors, not political views!

It's good to find an Afrikan art network, letting the eyes elaborate on the beauties of ethnicity. Im glad to see such melaninated beauties. Ashe!

I'm a recently new member of Diasporal Rhythms but I have definitely been following Mr. McCoy and Professor Parker closely and visiting their South Side of Chicago collections for several years now... It's a great feeling to be an artist and a collector. Thanks for the update and thanks for forming this group.

Comment by Black Art In America on January 5, 2014 at 5:52pm

Marcus we have been championing the efforts of Diasporal Rhythms for years and have invited co-founder Patric McCoy to speak about collecting in Miami and Atlanta BAIA events.

Take care,

Comment by Marcus Sterling Alleyne on January 5, 2014 at 4:25pm

When I wake up to art around me, it's a wonderful feeling ... Diasporal Rhythms is a dedicated group of Chicago collectors championing art of the diaspora and local black artists who deserve attention and exposure ....
