A Brief Blog Profile: Concrete Loop
In observance of February’s Black History Month, we're featuring some notable African-American blogs selected by PR Newswire's multicultural team. These blogs cover everything from health to lifestyle. Keep an eye on this space every Wednesday in February for more African-American blogs. Did you miss last week's blog? Here you go.
Concrete Loop has been blogging about black entertainment news since 2005.
It's pretty clear this is a site that covers the whole entertainment spectrum with extensive photo galleries, videos, music, exclusives, and fashion.
Among my favorite recent photo collections are Mary J. Blige's performance during the Feb. 11 state dinner for French President Francois Hollande in Washington, DC, and Jennifer Hudson's arrival to Reagan National Airport in Virginia to attend First Lady Michelle Obama's birthday party. (That's pretty cool.)
I really enjoyed singer-songwriter Jhene Aiko's performance on Conan on Feb. 12.

In other Black History Month coverage this month, we recently took a look at:
BlackDoctor.org, a comprehensive online health resource for African Americans that aims to be a "daily resource for healthier, happier living, and your daily medicine." It also appears to be a pretty popular site, garnering more than 540,000 likes on Facebook.
Black Girl Nerds proudly proclaims to be a geek-only zone. The site was created by Jamie Broadnax in Feb. 2012.
"Black Girl Nerds is a place for women of color with various eccentricities to express themselves freely and embrace who they are," the blog says. "This is not a site exclusively for black women. It's for all women who are just as nerdy as we are."
