If you are interesting in what is going on in the broad world of Black/African American Poetry, I think it is important not only to stay in touch with what is going on with The Furious Flower Poetry Center @ James Madison University.

Speaking of The Furious Flower Poetry Center , they publish a great blog/online journal called The Fight & The Fiddle, where you can read the latest interviews, essays, ideas and other news coming of the Center.
