Blogging While Black follows the journey of one blogger and one website from relative obscurity to national prominence. In 2006, Shawn P. Williams launched the highly acclaimed and nationally recognized DallasSouthBlog.com also known as Dallas South. The website has been featured on NBC Nightly News and CNN, as well as NPR, BBC, Ebony magazine, The Toronto Star and many other national outlets.

Before Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube became household names, blogs were used by African-Americans as a vehicle to combat negative images and stereotypes portrayed in the mainstream media. Black Bloggers finally found a way to act upon years of frustrations with mainstream media outlets

Blogging While Black is a virtual history lesson which chronicles a time that Williams refers to as The Golden Era of African-American online activism. The book uses emails, blog posts, comments, letters and live chats to thrust readers back to a time just before the explosion of social media and mobile devices. Williams documents how he was able to carve out his own niche in the expanse of the blogosphere by experimenting with technology, networking strategically, and maximizing his God given talents as a writer.

Blogging While Black looks back at some of the most significant moments in the online civil rights movement that took place between 2006 and 2008. African-American blogs were influential in bringing attention to the plight of a teenaged girl in Paris, Texas and a group of young men in Louisiana who eventually became known as The Jena Six. The author provides unique insight in these cases as a native of Paris and by having attended the September 2007 rally in Jena.

Black bloggers were also instrumental in helping to elect President Barack Obama. During the Democratic Primary in 2008, Dallas South was a trusted source for election coverage. Later that year Dallas South was one of a select number of blogs nationwide awarded credentials for the Democratic National Convention. Blogging While Black also takes a deeper look at the Denver Convention and how bloggers enjoyed better access than many member of the mainstream media.

At the end of each chapter, the author provides tips to those aspiring to use social media tools to make their own mark through the internet. He also looks at "breakthough bloggers" who have turned their online prominence into offline success.
