First check out this great mini-documentary on Ory Okolloh. If you don't know who she is she's Kenyan Pundit, and was a crucial voice during the Kenyan Elections Crisis, he blog being one of the go to sites for updates and news during the great time of uncertainty.
Second, check out my other blog that I've cranked up into high gear. Its called Afropundit and its a blog for people of color to come and post/vent/wax philosophical about politics/culture etc. So far we're focused on the US Elections. If you're interested in doing a guest post, let me know. Got four people on board so far.
